How to delete all custom document properties from Word document?

Hi I have dozens of word documents on dozens of laptops, each with about 150 custom document properties on them.

The custom document properties are causing errors with a Word plugin we are using and need to be deleted.

The problem is that when you open the custom document properties tab in Word 2007 (Microsoft Button > Prepare > Properties > Advanced Properties > Custom) there is no way to select multiple properties when deleting (ctrl+click and shift+click won't work).... so I would have to click each property and select delete for each document on each laptop.

I don't know much about VB scripting but is there a way to automate this process at least at the document level?
