Shift+Delete will only bypass the recycle bin. Hopefully you are not using the computer you deleted the file on any more than you have to ... you wouldn't want the file to be overwritten. Otherwise, any of the above utilities can recover files. If opinion's count, I personally like "File Scavenger" the best.

I should have mentioned that one of the many reasons I like file scavenger so much is that you can install it on another machine and then just copy the program files folder to a usb drive or floppy disk and run it from the disk. This prevents you from taking any chances overwriting your file...which would greatly reduce your chances of recovery.

You can use some file recover software, like "file recofery 3"(Freeware).
