    shutdown the pc immediately and go to another pc to get/buy software off the internet. Put it on a usb stick and recover your files.

    The longer you use and stay on the machine expecially if you download anything greatly reduces what you can recover.

    Don't use the computer because every second you do, you are overwriting deleted files and making them unrecoverable.

    Use a bootable recover CD like Bootzilla or UBCD4Win to run recovery apps, or connect the drive to another machine as a secondary drive and run the apps on that machine.

    Free recovery applications:

    1) Recover Files
    2) Recuva
    3) Restoration
    4) Free Undelete (NTFS only)
    5) Softperfect File Recovery
    6) ADRC Data Recovery Tools
    7) Undelete Plus
    8) Data Recovery
    9) PCI File Recovery
    10) DriveRescue
    11) Ultimate Data Recovery
    12) Disk Investigator

    Commercial:

    O&O Disk Recovery
    Paragon Mount Everything (Mounts any file system, CD/DVD burning, File Manager, Partitioner)
    GetDataBack (For FAT or NTFS)
    Ontrack EasyRecovery Pro
