Help - Lens profiles not displaying in Lightroom 4

I am using Lightroom 4 (on a mac) and have had this issue from day one, since upgrading from Lightroom 3.
None of the lens profiles I want are showing up in Lightroom. ( there are a few weird odd ones, that are of zero use to me) and the reset lens profiles option is greyed out. So I can't do that.
I check the physical folder on my hard drive and it lists all the various profiles. But I can't use them in lightroom 4.
Before anyone suggests that there are different profiles for Jpg/raw.. I have tried Raw, DNG (preferred option), JPG, TIFF, PSD. None of them give me more options of lens profiles.
I have also tried installing them through the Lens Profile Downloader, its says they are downloaded, but they still don't show up in Lightroom.
Also, I have tried reinstalling Lightroom, hoping it would fix this, but still identical issue.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, as I have had this issue since LR4 released and haven't been able to get any help.
