That is a key binding rather than a Command Completion (although it was once called Auto-Completion). In any case click on Source->Key Bindings->Edit Key Bindings File… to open the editor for Key Bindings (sorry, I don't know the German translation). The select the binding you want to remove and click on Remove.

I hope this solves your problem.

Good Luck,
