Default MS Word 2010 defaults

I have set up Word 2010 many times yet I am now flummoxed by a seemingly simple thing: My default Word page starts with text box. I don't want that, I want a clean, white, page with nothing on it. Please help. BTW I have set Normal Style to "no frames" and "no borders" so this infernal default text box is set somewhere else.

Thanks eduzs - Surprise, margin settings on the ribbon was greyed out.


Thanks Stefan Blom - I have deleted normal.dotm and will start over. Do you have any idea what setting caused the text box?

Do you have a printer added?
Also check in advanced options if "Show text boundaries" is activated.
