    not familiar with altium - taking a stab in the dark
    since you're looking at a pcb:

    if you have the schematic, check that each schematic component is represented by one component on the pcb

    check that each component is actually one component and not a "special" component
    actually consisting of two parts and created for some obscure undocumented reason
    if this is the case, you may have to re-create both components

    does it have components on both sides, and you're selecting a component on the top
    and a component on the bottom at the same time?
    if this is the case, adjust settings so you only select components on the top or the bottom
    and not both.

    I'm not an Altium user either but, I believe, the components that stick together are in a room. The original designer wanted to keep them together for some reason or another so they put them in a room.
