Accidently deleted NTUSER.DAT files

This is a backup copy of your registry, but it makes only one on every reboot. NTUSER.dat is a registry database file for every user account that exists on your computer which allows you to customize settings such as your desktop appearance and your home page in Internet Explorer differently than from other accounts. The second time you reboot, the backup copy of NTUSER.dat will be overwritten by the new backup where that file doesn't exist. At least that is my understanding of why Last Known rarely helps--people have rebooted several times before trying this method.
So if it doesn't work, run System Restore and restore to a date prior to the problem. That is a backup of most of your registry as well.
