Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! First method worked for me too!

I had some files that I created by copying/pasting tables from a web page, but it would copy these tiny icon pictures too.

Before, I would click Ctrl-6 to get rid of them, but it only hides them. I just discovered that if I try to upload my file to Google Docs and let it be converted to their format, the pictures came back. So doing this procedure got rid of them permanently. Thanks!
