You can remove them all with find/replace:

press ctrl+H
Paste the sentence to remove in the "find" box
leave bottom box blank
click "replace all" button.

Done!

What version of MSWord are you using?  MSWord supports using wildcards in Find/Replace, just check the box and use a asterick * to repalce the part that changes.  See attached image for example.

To match the whole sentence including the filename, you can also use wildcard characters:

While you are in the find/replace box, check the "Use Wildcards" checkbox.

Type "Click here to get file: ** " in the find box

follow same steps as above, and it should remove them. Before hitting "replace all", you can also hit "find next" to make sure it is finding the right sentences, as a double-check.

Cheers
