Have you tried simply backspacing over it? That usually works for me...

If you turn on the show/hide, highlight the paragraph mark after the horizontal line and hit backspace it SHOULD remove the line(s). I've also found that if you highlight the paragraph mark prior to the horizontal line and hit ctrl + Q it will remove it, keep in mind it also removes pragraph formattting.

Just eliminate the paragraph mark and ok, it removes the formating also.
