If I were you, I'd download an app called InstEdit. Then, in your file table look at the row of the file you wish to delete. Get the component name from the 'Component_' column. Go to the 'Component' table. Search for this component by looking in the 'Component' column. Delete the row.

The nifty thing about this application is when you try to delete a row, it will then display a 'tree view' of any foreign keys that this row relates to. In this case, it will show you if any other files/registry etc exists in the same component. If you deem the component safe to delete (maybe it doesn't have any other files/registry values contained in it) then delete it. This will then delete any rows in other tables that reference this component.
