You will need a commercial application to accomplish this.
Examples are Undelete (http://www.undelete.com/undelete/undelete.asp?) and the Norton Protected Recycle Bin, part of Norton Systemworks.

If you use an undelete tool, it is not 100% secure that you get back the whole file... when you delete the file it remains on your disk until your system decides to use that part of the disk to save the file. That might be immediately or even a year later.
You might stop using shift + delete and resize the paper bin by right-clicking on it, selecting properties and then moving the bar.

David Baumann is right about the 100% security. Undelete tools eventually release the deleted files when needed conform to the FIFO (First In, First Out) principle. It depends on settings and the amount of free space on your disk.
