Let G be a finite group. Based on the Gruenberg-Kegel graph GK(G), the order of G can be divided into a product of coprime positive integers. These integers are called the order components of G and the set of order components is denoted by OC(G). In this article we prove that, if S is a non-Abelian finite simple group with a disconnected graph GK(S), with an exception of U4(2) and U5(2), and G is a finite group with OC(G) = OC(S), then G is neither Frobenius nor 2-Frobenius. For a group S isomorphic to U4(2) or U5(2), we construct examples of 2-Frobenius groups G such that OC(S) = OC(G). In particular, the simple groups U4(2) and U5(2) are not recognizable by their order components.
