SharePoint 2007 – Unable to edit, delete or close the Content Editor Web Part

The error was caused by the content in the Content Editor Web Part on the page.  This had been copied and pasted to another Content Editor Web Part on the same page and it has brought across some CSS script with it.
This causes the error, but because of the error we cannot delete the web part through the web part’s menu, we can go to the link:  http://server/yourpage.aspx?contents=1, here it will list out all the web parts on the page, you can now delete or hide the failing web part.

    But I do not have any Content Editor WebPart on our page. Neither I see it as a hidden web-part. We remember having it long ago. Probably we deleted it. Because we cannot see it as an hidden web-part, do you still think it is a cause. if not what else can it be. Pleeease help… Breaking brains and wasting a long time on this.
