Bob -- you have to be in the form designer -- start a blank form for
example (double-click "[New Form]" in the Navigator).

Then in the File menu, find "Set Up Custom Components" -- select it.

In the dialog, you will see any custom components set to automatically
load when dBASE starts. Select one of them and the "Delete" button will
be active -- "Delete" does not remove the from the harddrive, but
deletes it from the list. Remove the one(s) that need to be removed and
then close the dialog. Close the empty/blank form, then close dBASE.

Restart dBASE. These components shouldn't be on the Component Palette
