You should be able to remove any VM from the Hyper V List by right clicking it and selecting Delete, however, this does not erase the VHD file. That has to be deleted separately. If you don't have the option to delete VMs, it is likely you do not have the necessary access to do so. Go here for information on managing the Role Based Access Control system for hyper-v: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd283076%28WS.10%29.aspx
