Pinning to the Start Menu

In Build 7000 I could pin Windows Update to the start menu, but in 7100 I can't. Anyone able to? When I right click on Windows Update in the programs menu it no longer shows that option.

Pinning "New" and "Open" Word document to start menu
Using Word 2007, I am unable to pin the "New" and "Open" Word Document to the Start Menu. I was able to do this in XP and Vista. I go to "All Programs" and can load Word but cannot find the options new/open. In Word I go to "Word Options" and it is not listed there either. Thanks.
