Win-7-Pro64bit 7-H-Prem-64bit

I would like to know what all is selected on the prior screen shots I provided and on this one/ as far as your settings,
As you can see I keep Google on a tight leash possibly you should do the same as a test and mimic my setting to see if possibly one of the settings is clashing with the feature your missing,
