Locate and rename any Normal.dot files.
Do you have SR1 installed? SR1 allowed the box to "float over text.
Right click on the border of the text box and deselect anchor.
It is a good idea to put one enter mark on the page before adding graphics or text boxes.

Turned Out Nothing to do with Normal.Dot. or SR1

On Drawing tool. Select Grid and check that Grid dimensions are sensable. He had a grid of "55 cm" !!!
