Have you looked in the recycle bin?

Try doing a system restore. Its a very handy little feature available in the Windows' operating systems that automatically stores restore points in your PC once you've modified the system in a certain way - installed/uninstalled a program, for example - so that you can always revert your computer back to its previous state just in case a new piece of software kills the computer, or you've removed important components of the system unknowingly.
Go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools and click on System Restore, then browse through all your recent restore points until you find a suitable one - then restore it, and hopefully this will rectify the issue. :tazz:

System Restore does not monitor data file extensions, just protected Windows System Files.
