Why bother to retrieve it?

You can re-install it from your Windows CD

If the relevant files are in the Recycle Bin just select the files and click on Restore.

If they have been deleted from the Recycle Bin then that is a different matter:

firstly DO NOT save anything to your HDD.(Anything saved could overwrite the files that you need)

Try to get a recovery program that runs from disk (Floppy or CD) and attempt recovery.

Start, Control Panel, Add or Remove programs. Click on Add/Remove Windows components then follow the prompts.
