Removing slide noises from acoustic guitar tracks

Now why on earth would you want to do that?…

Personally, I enjoy listening to a guitar that sounds as if it’s been recorded by a real person. String noise is just part of the deal. You can de-emphasize it a bit with eq, etc., but you’ll drive yourself crazy trying to create a guitar part that doesn’t contain some bit of noise.

You could try flatwound strings. They have a more mellow sound, and you don’t hear the “finger squeek” sound like on roundwound strings. I use them for my electric bass, and a lot of people (mostly Jazz players) use them on their gits. They also last longer because they don’t tarnish/rust as fast.
