    Does it also happen in another, even temporarily created, user account?

    Have you looked in System Preferences>Trackpad>More Gestures and make sure that the boxes are checked??? Hope this helps

    Your welcome, I knew it had to be something in system preferences. It is strange however that it keeps changing back every time you re-start I'm not sure why either.
