Can't Pin to Explorer

I can no longer pin folders to the explorer icon on the taskbar. Whenever i try to pin something to it, the red censor sign (circle with a line through it) comes up instead of "pin to explorer". I'm running Windows 7 Evaluation Copy 7100.

Thanks, but neither of those were really any help. I'm not sure whether my first post was clear, but I'm trying to add a folder to explorer's jumplist.

How many do you have there already?
