Design view in Visual Studio 2010 Academic

Hello,

I am having some weird issues with my VS 2010 Academic.
I have been using VS 2003 so far, had needs for VS 2010 until now.

I am having a stupid issue.

I setup a new Web Application and wanted to create my first web page in it.

I drag a textbox or a button from Toolbox on the new page, in Design view.

Then for some reason I can not freely drag textbox to any location on that blank webpage. (I left click on the textbox or button, hold and attempt to move it around  on the page)

I can only move that textbox or button up and down, can't moe it horizontally or in any other chosen direction.

What am I doing wrong? Is there a certain setup in VS 2010 that I need to set ?

Attached is screenshot of my simple VS 2010 Design page. You will see the button on it, and Design view looks like some old HTML editor ?

This VS 2010 is installed on 2 servers with different OS (Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2003), as I wanted to make sure the issue is not due to OS.

Thank you for your help in advance.

Grid Layout was removed from Visual Studio after V2003 because its a bad way to design web pages.
Flow Layout is now used and then controls should be positioned using css, this way layout and content is kept separate which is the best practice for web pages.
