Can't down load photos from camera as somehow My Pictures has become "Documents and Settings/Mary,USER 49853BCAD/My Documents/My Pictures". How do I return it to just My pictures PLEASE? Thank you in advance for all help....

That's where it should be so it is ok. Mine is in: C:\Documents and Settings\lotvic\My Documents\My Pictures

I'm guessing - Open up a folder view: eg Click the Start Button, Click Pictures. Then, on the Tool Bar at the top, click 'Tools', then click 'Folder Options' on the drop down menu. Then click the 'View' tab, then click the 'Restore Defaults' button.

As lotvic says there is nothing wrong - My Pictures is one of many folders in My Documents, so the OP's path is correct.
