Due to a performance issue, I closed a few web parts that were on the page, however I now would like to delete those permanently.
How do I delete closed web parts from a SharePoint page permanently?

These screenshots are from 2003 but its much the same process with 2007/10
You need to get into the webpart maintainance page , you need to append ?contents=1 where the webpart is hosted e.g
Try deleting from there
This is a lot faster than going back and forth to the Maintenance Page.
