Files you delete are initially only 'hidden' from any file listing utility such as Windows Explorer. Windows marks the file's location as available for writing another file over it. The file will remain there until that happens, such as when a new program is installed.

So, provided the file has not been over-written, it's possible to retrieve it with a third party file-recovery program such as 'PC Inspector' http://www.pcinspect.../UK/welcome.htm

So, the sooner you attempt to recover a deleted file, the better chance of success you will have. But if it was deleted several weeks ago and you've created many new files or added new programs since then, deleted files will almost certainly have been over-written and destroyed.
