the asterisk means that its an exectuable file. Stop trying to put executable permissions on it. You may notice that the listing for that file is green. You can't have green files, its just a file. Colour means nothing to the computer. In the same way, the asterisk means nothing; its just a helpful character to inform you that its executable file.
