I find that Notepad++ works great for removing junk lines in the text.
in notepad++
go to search > find
search for a term that appears in the lines you want to remove.
check mark line, hit find all.
go to search > delete bookmarked lines

The characters [] have a special meaning in regular expressions. A slash '\' is placed before each one to force the use of the non-special meaning.

Anyway, I tested the expressions I provided above. They work correctly in MSWord.
