Windows 7: Computer or Control Panel shortcuts on taskbar

Computer or Control Panel shortcuts on taskbar

Always dragged a copy of Computer and Control Panel icons to the taskbar at the bottom in Vista. 7 doesn't seem to let you do that. It just says pinned but they aren't there. Also notice that some of the programs I have reinstalled after installing 7 at the ned ask if you want to add a shortcut to the desktop or quick launch taskbar then don't appear there either.
