ePO 4.0 Patch 4 Upgrade Reinstalls Junk!?

I prefer to have a lean & mean ePO server, so all I want on it are policies, queries and extensions for ePO (obviously) and VirusScan as that's all we're using it for. After going from patch 3 to patch 4 this morning, I noticed I have lots of crap that I already manually removed that's not pertinent to our environment, such as...

GroupShield
HIPS
SiteAdvisor
SpamKiller
System Profiler
Virex

Why does the upgrade reinstall all that crap? I've wasted the last 20-30 minutes just removing this crap, and would prefer to not have to do this the next time a patch is released.

Is there a fast way of deleting all this without having to do it manually within the ePO console? I removed the extensions and most of the policies, but there has to be more than 30 different queries I'd like to remove. Doing that manually will take a long long time.

Thanks.

RE: ePO 4.0 Patch 4 Upgrade Reinstalls Junk!?

I think you will be doing this manually. I personally just leave it vanilla in case some pieces are ever needed or for interop capabilities.

However, I am definitely not an expert in this arena.
