Restore Pinned apps in taskbar

Hi there, i have a problem after one of windows Update processes, i'm on Win7 Beta 7000 and all my default pinned apps buttons are gone, and "pinned app" feature is working strange.

A list of all the little strange problems happening:
-all buttons lost their extra features (recent doc, play/pause buttons for wmp, explorer particular list)
-a blank pinned app button that doesn't want to erase
-if i pin windows media player, when i open it another icon appears


Any idea?


Thanks!

Thank u for your answer! I've done that yet without success ;(
My actual problem is with the taskbar.
But now that i give a better look at my start menu, many entries in the all program section (i.e. windows media, internet explorer, many programs i installed...well now that i noticed, all programs that were pinned in taskbar) , there are no more.

Wow, really strange;(
