Hide Components on Start Screen (4.2)

Is there a way to hide the Base and Math components on the start screen?

I’m running LibreOffice 4.2.1 on Windows 7 64-bit

If you look into Programs > LibreOffice, you will find shortcuts to all applications of LibO. You can pick what you want an move it where you want click them. In this case make sure that you switch of the quickstart. Tools > options > Libre Office > Memory and keep LibreOffice Quickstarter unchecked.
