You may have just removed My Pictures from the Start menu.

Right click the Taskbar, Properties, Start menu, Customize, Advanced, My Pictures, select 'Display as a link'.

thanks graham, tryed that, no good, i think the root of the problem is why are there two files in the recycle bin, both not shown, and why will they not restore.
