Class is base for everything in C# (i mean to say Control and components are class only). When it come to controls it can said as "Controls are component which supports events driven programming (Like click etc)" where component can be said as a part of code for example suppose you are developing an application related to a bank and there is part of code which take care of opening of account that very part of code can be called as component.

Difference between user control and custom control is user controls are derived from class called "UserControl" where custom controls are genrally derrivied from other controls like textbox and labels etc
