I created a new library to publish some profiles we use in our company. But some profiles didin't work exactley as they were supossed to do. So i tried to delete some of the families i created. But the Inventor doesn't allow me to do so. The button to delete the family just is in gray, and i can't use it. How can i delete the families i created?

In your library view, you are set to Merged View.  you cannot delete in this view.  Click in there and find your library, then you should be able to delete.  merged view means you are viewing your library plus the standard libraries.
