First thing,
To increase the chance of recovery stop using that computer (don't even turn it off) and get online on another machine.
If its only just happened there is a good chance you will be able to get the info back. But wait for advice from someone from here with experience at recovery.

If you haven't yet emptied your recycle bin, right-click on it and select "Restore"...

what ever you do, don't install or write anything onto the harddrive that contained the delete data.
First, you will need to another/seperate harddrive or memory device. Next, go to this site:
http://aumha.org/a/recover.php
and scroll to the bottom. You will find a link to download the file, restoration.exe. Copy it to the seperate harddrive or memory device. Run the file, to the right, there will be a little text box, and underneath it will be a button entitled "search deleted files". If you know the names of the delete files enter it into the box, if not, just leave it black and click search. Once you find the deleted files, copy it to the seperate harddrive / memory device, NOT on the harddrive containing the deleted data.

Hope you find what you're looking for.

edit: note that you can only restore one file at a time, so if you deleted alot of stuff, well, have fun...
