Reset popular articles

I'd like to reset the Popular Articles counter in the Control Panel (J3.0.2).

Any ideas please?

You can reset the hit column of the content table in the database or use an extension: http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions ... tics/16922

I had no idea this wouldn't be in the Joomla Admin area. Thank goodness I didn't spend more than a day looking for it :-[ Your extension suggestion is exactly what I need. Here's what they say on their site:
This module is most useful for when you have completed the development of a site and you want a fresh reset of all hit counters prior to going live. Another use would be to do a monthly or yearly hit count reset. No need to go into the database. Nice module.
Great result, thanks.
