   begin
     if items.Count=0 then exit;
     for i:= 0 to Items.Count-1 do
      if items[i].Selected then Items[i].Delete;
   end;

try doing it backwards
 with mylistview1 do
                         begin
                           if items.Count=0 then exit;
                           for i:= Items.Count-1 downto 0 do
                            if items[i].Selected then Items[i].Delete;
                         end;

Incidently you dont need this line:  if items.Count=0 then exit;

with mylistview1 do
begin
  for i:= Items.Count-1 downto 0 do
    if items[i].Selected then Items[i].Delete;
end;


Sorry an explanation:

suppose you have 5 items in the list that are all selected.
If you delete item[0] there are now only 4 items in the list.
If you delete item[1] there are now only 3 items in the list.
If you delete item[2] there are now only 2 items in the list.
So when you try to delete item[3], you will get an error because item[3] does not exist.

You need to start with the last item in the list, to stop this.

hello you should it like that :

procedure TForm1.Button3Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  liSelected, liBuffer: TListItem; //the item actualy selected in the listview
begin
  liSelected := mylistview1.Selected;
  if liSelected = nil then
    exit; //shoul not be possible

  while mylistview1.SelCount <> 0 do
  begin
    //delete the selected Items because they no longer exists
    liBuffer := liSelected;
    //get the next selevted item
    liSelected := mylistview1.GetNextItem(liSelected, sdAll, [isSelected]);
    liBuffer.Delete;
  end;
end;
