I Recently Did A System Recovery.
I Need to Get My Stuff Back Now.
I Was Wondering If Anyone Knows How To Undo The Process.
It Was Not A Full Full System Recovery.
While Doing The Recovery Procces It asked If I Wanted to Do A Full Recovery
Or One That Saved Files (Something To That Extent)
I Went With The One That Backed Up Files.
Not A Total Wipe Out.
Is There Any Ways To Undo This OR Get My Files And Progarams Back Or No?

I'm not quite sure what you mean.
Tell us exactly what you did and what you used to achieve where you are now.
The more details we receive the more we can work with.

There's 2 possibilities I can think of that you tried.
  • Windows Repair, With a Windows repair you get your windows disk and replace the windows files. Nothing goes lost and you should get back into windows after it.
  • System Restore, This should just reverse some files (mainly drivers) and should after it is finished get back to your files.
If you provide us with enough information I can put effort into thinking of a solution.

Regards,
Olrik

System Recovery is generally one way only.
If you want the data back you need file recovery software. The programs are dead and buried, even if you do recover them they wouldn't work anyway. Reinstall from the original CD(s).
