Hod down CTRL and click the row you want to deselect

I think deselcting using ctrl will only deselect the first cell.

the easier thing to do would be to hold control and select the ones you do want

Hold control and click on the row number in the left margin.

@ jacko - I can only test this in 2010, but holding control just allows you to select a cell in the selection without losing the rest of the selection
