Is there a way to delete all the unauthorized songs, from iTunes at once?
I have over a hundred songs that I saved form an old HDD that I did not know they where secure in iTunes.

The simplest way I would think is to move the iTunes store folder rename it old then rebuild a new library without these tracks.
Since most of your music is stored in libraries and managed by iTunes these tracks maybe in a different folder from iTunes purchased tracks. Try using the edit select all then drag to the trash bin.
Please refer to the manual and always backup first.
see if this can assist you, look down to
Open the "iTunes Music Library.xml" and do a global search and replace with your text editor of choice. A screenshot
