Remove all updates from SQL

When we first got VCM 2.5 up and running, it was set to download all updates. I'm wanting to use update manager only for ESX host updates, nothing else. I don't like having all the other updates (like microsoft stuff, etc) listed in the repository. I've deleted all the updates from the download area, but they still how up in the repository. I know this is because the updates are still in the SQL 2005 database. I'd like to remove these and start from scratch. I tried uninstall/reinstall and chose to not reinitilize the database, so of course they're still listed after the reinstall. I'm nervous about choosing yes to reinitilizing the db cause I don't know what that'll do to the rest of the components that I don't want to disturb.

Is there an easy way to do this? Like purge all the records from the update manager tables in the SQL db?
