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.
