I think should be instead:

For Each item as ListViewItem in somelistview.SelectedItems
      somelistview.Items.Remove(item)
Next

Hi

Looking around the net I found this example, posted by angelII, which is better?
If you want to remove the items from the list, change the loop, because for each will fail if you remove items:

dim l as long
for l = ListView.ListItems.Count - 1 to 0
  if ListView.Listitems(l).Selected then
    ListView.Listitems.Remove l
  end if
next

You can do it this way, to avoid fail:

Dim items as Array = new Array(somelistview.SelectedItems.Count)
somelistview.SelectedItems.CopyTo(items,0)
For Each item as ListViewItem in items
      somelistview.Items.Remove(item)
Next

I am getting an error on the "New Array" saying
" 'New' cannot be used on a class that is declared 'mustinherit' "

Sorry, C# customs. Try with:

Dim items(somelistview.SelectedItems.Count-1) As Object
