Help Debugging Embarcadero Rad XE3 / Delphi

I have purchased and used most Delphi Versions since Delphi 1.

I am currently using RAD XE3 (Delphi) and trying to rewrite/update existing applications within RAD XE3.

In Older versions, I could set a Breakpoint in Code and the application would stop where I expected it to stop when debugging. Now I have the following issues:-
When setting a Breakpoint the code does NOT stop where I expect the code to stop
When setting a Breakpoint the Breakpoint SOMETIMES has a RED or Green Circle with an X through it
When stepping through Code, I often step through Code that is NOT MINE eg. Belongs to other SYSTEM DLL's - HOW DO I STOP THESE ?
Also it now takes an Extremely Long Time to Run the Applications while Debugging

All I want to Do is Find WHERE my errors are occurring, set a Breakpoint on MY CODE and Ignore any External DLL's, INC files etc....,  Step through each Line of My Code and Set Watches on Variables if Required.

I have changed numerous options, I have even removed AQTime (Smartbear) which was causing errors, and reinstalled the entire app on 3 occasions, all to no avail.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
