Click on the first file in the block, hold down Shift and click the last file. The whole block will be selected. If the block contains any files you wish to keep, just hold down Ctrl and click individual files to deselect them. When you are happy with your selection, press Delete or right-click on the selection and choose Delete from the menu.

Further to Eric's reply:
Remember that you can order the files by name, date etc to get the list in a format which suits. e.g. sort by date if you want to select all files created between certain dates.
