Try dragging a marquee around it. Sometimes that's easier than just trying to click on the box.

 

Also, can you post a link to the document so I can take a look?

In this context, a marquee is simply dragging a rectangle around something. So use the Edit tool and try dragging a rectangle around the box to select it. If it gets selected, then you should be able to just delete it.
