How do I split a multipart polygon which consists of several polygons into single polygons so I can delete each polygon without deleting them all at one time?
I am using ArcGIS Desktop 10.0.
Under "Advanced Editing" there is a Button for "Explode Multi-Part features". Worked just fine!

You can use the Multipart To Singlepart (Data Management) tool which:
Creates a feature class containing singlepart features generated by separating multipart input features.
ArcMap, arctoolbox -> data management -> features -> Multipart to singlepart
Qgis, vector menu -> Geometry tools -> Multipart To Singlepart.
