Default Cant move vertex, face or edge!!

Hi, Im new to Maya and have a problem!

I can manipulate object when I select it or select object mode but when I try to move edge or vertex I just dont get the x arrows for the move selection to manipulate them and the edge does not highlight when I hover over them.
I allready tryed pressing W og B for the soft selection but that is not problem!!

The pic attached is my problem, I cant move anything in that mode!!

Plíss help, hehe!!

For your move tool settings, under "Common Selection Options" for "Marquee" uncheck "Camera based selection" and see if that helps. I would just reset the tool settings just incase something else was changed.
