Loss of extra options on right clicking a taskbar icon?

My problem here is quite simple, well the problem is, not to sure on the solution...

Basically, I like to have icons to my most used programs pined to the taskbar, as you do, and when I right click one of these icons, I'm usually presented with a list of many extra options related to the program. Well on my desktop, these extra options seem to have dissappeared?

For example, Google Chrome on my Netbook:


But on my desktop:

?

So, does anyone know how to get the extra options back?
Cheers

They are called Jump Lists, start by checking this:

Right click on start orb and click on Properties. Click on Start Menu tab, and see if the box below is checked.

Store and display recently opened items in the Start menu and the taskbar

CCleaner cause this if you used a one of its options, "Taskbar Jump Lists" I think. Anyways it always seems to cause jumplist to stop working for a while.

Yes, I agree with logicearth, as Jump Lists do use history, and CCleaner will delete same. Good answer, and glad it's fixed for you. A Guy
