    I've created a few MVC widget via Thunder, and things are working as expected -- however when I attempted to delete this widget (de-register it as well), I can't seem to get it to apply. I go into Administration > settings > advanced > toolboxes > toolboxes> PageControls > Sections > MVcWidgets > Tools

    and then delete the specified widget that Thunder registered for me on my behalf... I log out of the admin section, and then when I log back in, it gets re-created. What else am I missing to properly delete this widget?

    I open up the ToolboxesConfig.config file, and from the above steps I mentioned, I see it removed from the .config file (get prompted that the file has changed). Keeping the file open in my VS IDE after logging back into the site -- get prompted again that the file has changed, and voila, the section that I had previously deleted (and saw that was removed from the file) is now back!

    Thank you for contacting us.

    To remove the control, you need to delete the files first, build, and remove it from the toolbox. Basically the control registers itself, if you do not build after you have removed the file, it will keep doing it.
