Legacy Distribution Point Cleanup

This script will clean up the legacy items left over after a distribution point has been deleted in the configuration manager console. This is sometimes necessary if the same server is going to be used to re-push the distribution point back down to it. The script will not proceed if the DP registry keys are not present so that it can find where the distribution point directory exists to be deleted. 

You can download the script from my GitHub site.
