SCCM Configmgr 2007 Script to delete packages from Assigned DPs

Long ago ,written SCCM report to list packages not used for 6 months as part of Package Archival process http://eskonr.com/2012/11/sccm-configmgr-package-archival-process-cleanup-activity/ .This report tells you to take further action to clean or move to Archive folder to wait for some more months before it goes for Deletion.

What next ? Delete these packages from Assigned DPs to get some disk space ?

You may find several scripts to do this task on the internet but, i  find this is easy for me to get this activity done.

Identify list of package which you want to remove ,pipe them to notepad .You can do more customizations if needed.
