Design-time control resizing via mouse disabled

I recently noticed that many of the controls on my VB forms have white handles and cannot be resized with the mouse, but can be resized by entering a width or height in the property explorer.  Other forms don't seem to have this problem and the handles are black.  The only thing I can see that seems to be consistent with the white-handled controls is that they reside on a frame but the frames themselves often exhibit this behaviour.  Can anyone tell me what is going on and is there a way around it?

Thanks

My CoWorker TheDoc had this problem and the steps he did was UnInstall VS and ReInstall and that didnt Work. So he Formatted his Computer and then Installed VS and it Worked. Basically it seems like a bug a Visual Basic

just as a side-note, it isn't just controls in frames, but it does seem to be only on forms with frames whether the control is on the frame or not and on some items, the height and width can be adjusted with the mouse while the control's position (top and left) cannot.

Thanks Michael,

I will leave this open for a bit longer in case someone has a less drastic solution.  But in the absence of such, points will go to you.  Frankly, for now I will put up with it vs. totally re-installing but appreciate the information.
