This will delete all the frames in all the footers in all the sections.
Sub DelFramesInFooters()
    Dim Sec As Word.Section
    Dim ftr As Word.HeaderFooter
    Dim wrdFrame As Word.Frame
    
 
    For Each Sec In ActiveDocument.Sections
        For Each ftr In Sec.Footers
            For Each wrdFrame In ftr.Range.Frames
                wrdFrame.Delete
            Next wrdFrame
        Next ftr
    Next Sec
End Sub
