try go to this url:


just replace YOURSITE and YOUR_PAGE_WITH_WEBPARTS (e.g. default.aspx) in the URL. It should redirect you to the mgmt page with webparts, where you should be able to delete the problematic one.

NVM, try to solve problem with your webpart first:… Or delete webpart content in sharepoint folder (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\CONTROLTEMPLATES\...) – luccio Jan 29 '13 at 10:07

Open the web part page in view mode, not edit mode. Then add this to the URL


So, if your URL for the page is


change it to


This will show you a page where web parts on the page are listed and you can select individual web parts and delete them.

yes i get it but i can not still not add any webpart to my page – Batistuta Jan 29 '13 at 10:03
The idea here is to give you another approach to delete the trouble web part, since you get an error message when you edit the web part page and try to delete it there. – teylyn Jan 29 '13 at 10:11
