If it deleted to the recycle bin then just restore the items, if it deleted them properly then I dunno??

I know there are companies that work in getting files etc back from computers even once deleted, but not sure how much it costs.

I think system restores affects files, its just changes to the system itself.

Might as well give it a go, but if ypu deleted them to the recycle bin they should still be there, unless you emptied it of they were too big to fint in

Try PC Inspector File Recovery. You can get it from download.com and its freeware. Its pretty good and it saved me more than a few times.

A important thing to remember:

Don't touch the drive that contains the deleted files. Windows may overwrite the deleted files with new stuff.

A side question from me ...

If you delete things right(even in also the rubbish bin so there gone completely) how do you find it again like some of these programs? Is there a hidden place on the computer which stores all the things you had or something?

There ain't a hidden place. The file is still left alone, it just doesn't appear to normal apps. Windows treats the file as if it didn't exist. If its left there too long, the file may get overwritten with something else, since Windows thinks its just empty space.
