I'd also prefer to have the solutions in the forums. I'd just love to have such in the correct forums so that people can find it easily.
As to the problem on your end, can you please take a look at the IE Add-ons? You should have two items as in the attached image. Make sure those are available and enabled. You can also try disabling any other IE add-ons preferably one by one to find if any conflict breaks the recorder. If you find such conflict the information will be highly appreciated.
Finally, I'd suggest trying an installation repair. It can surely fix any issues like unregistered add-ons or missing registry settings.
Let us know if this helps or if you need further assistance.

Edit: I've updated the screen capture. I posted an incorrect Add-Ons capture by mistake.
