Microsoft has an article on it here

Objective: Do a find and replace. You can automatically replace text — for example, you can replace ":" with ""

  1. On the Edit menu, click Replace.

  2. In the Find what box, enter the text that you want to search for(":").

  3. In the Replace with box, enter the replacement text("")

  4. Select any other options that you want (in this case, N/A). Click Find Next, Replace, or Replace All.

What this does, is it looks for all colons (":") and replaces them with "" (or nothing) thereby removing all colons.

Press CTRL + F to bring up the "find" dialog box. –  wizlog Jul 31 '11 at 17:09
    
Press CTRL+H instead, to go straight to the "Replace" dialog box. It's a common standard keyboard accelerator for it. –  paradroid Jul 31 '11 at 17:11

@celsowm I'm not sure what you mean, Click "edit" under my question, and fix-it. If it still makes sense, I'll approve it. –  wizlog Nov 8 '11 at 13:15

Type CTRL+H and type : in the top box and nothing in the second box and then press Replace All.

This is the same for a lot of Windows text editors as well.
