As suggested, I renamed the file, which indeed was the solution to my problem. So I have deleted com_tcpdf. Thanks.

Still left with a question. I deleted com_tcpdf via Ftp. I still see the VM component in the Joomla Extension Manager Control Panel. Can/should I also de-install it here?

it is necessary for your invoices etc .. the FE folder and files must be left overs from an old install

1.0.2 doesn't have any

Remove all com_tcpdf folder, is not a solution.
You had to uninstall com_tcpdf with Joomla manager >uninstall.
It's why you see the Link to it in the Joomla extension menu.
tcpdf  1.02 for Virtuemart is a library and can be download in Virtuemart dowloads http://dev.virtuemart.net/attachments/download/1022/com_virtuemart.3.0.18_extract_first.zip and extract the zips and install com_tcpdf_1.0.2.zip with Joomla

Did not realize that tcpdf 1.0.2 is required. This file, controlled from the Control Panel, is located in: /libraries/
The com_tcpdf folder I removed via Ftp, as this caused the problem, was in components/ and very likely a remains from an earlier installation beyond the reach of the Control Panel.
Currently there is still a com_tcpdf file in administrator/components/ How about that?

That's correct - AFAIK it is needed as it is present in a native installation of  VirtueMart3.0.18_Joomla_3.6.2-Stable-Full_Package.zip

To be clear

TCPDF is required for VM .. it is a com in the admin

The problem is with OLD installs that have some left over FRONT END com tcpdf files that up till now have done no harm but with the J3.6.3 are somehow being called and causing the fatal

the fix is simply delete the FE com_tcpdf folder.. thats it!!!!!! It shouldn't be there on current intalls

If you further want to tidy your install uninstall tcpdf and re-install http://dev.virtuemart.net/attachments/download/1003/com_tcpdf_1.0.2.zip
