    Unable to select and delete portions of a file?

    StanWelks Level 1

      I have not worked with Illustrator since version 8 (I believe). I have a .AI file that I am simply trying to modify some of the colors and delete some text made into paths.

       

      I selected everything and ungrouped it. I now want to select the text paths and delete those. When I try selecting just the paths that make up the text, it selects everything else also. I then try to hold down shift to deselect the parts I want to keep, though it deselects everything. I also try to hide some of the layers, though when I do this, the eyeball will not go off in the layers palette. Everything is setup as a Live Paint Group in the layers palette. I am using CS3

       

      Thanks in advance for any help!!!!!!
