Excel 2007 running Winxp

I have a huge spread sheet and need to filter out times.

Example below: what i am trying to do is filter out all times except between xx:55 thru xx:05 10 minute window. Really 1 entry per hour around the top of the hour. This program creates an entry every 10 minutes so it can very through out the day. I've quickly looked at auto filter but requires a lot of box checking, and I don't know how to write a formula that may be much quicker. Lines in Red would be filtered out.

Another possibility would also be to delete the row if filtering is harder.
Thanks so much for any help at all.

Try this formula in C3 copied down:

=AND(MINUTE(TEXT(LEFT(A3,5),"hh:mm"))>5,MINUTE(TEXT(LEFT(A3,5),"hh:mm"))<55)

Thanks but not sure what to do next, I see it creates a True or False statement, but now I am not sure on the next step. Sorry, still learning things here.

You can AutoFilter that column for TRUE or FALSE to show the records you want (I'm not sure which). If you want to remove the records delete the visible rows.

Got it, just figure that out before your reply, this really helps, now I can filter or delete the True/Flase instead of the 100 entries I would have had to do before, this is great, thanks so much.

You guys and this forum is great, I have bought a couple of books as well, taking time to learn all this stuff. you quick answers are appreciated!
