Hmm. A wildcard search should be possible: \**^13 , but it doesn't seem to work (in 2007, anyway).

This macro does, though
Sub Delstar()
    Dim para As Paragraph
    For Each para In ActiveDocument.Paragraphs
        If para.Range.Characters(1).Text = "*" Then
            para.Range.Delete
        End If
    Next para
End Sub
