Recovering Unsaved Word Documents after "End Process"

Word froze before I saved. The document had been up for about 15 minutes (I had only typed for a few minutes and then was interrupted). Autorecovery is set for 10 minutes.  It froze when I tried to copy and paste from dictionary.com (a problem I have enountered in Word 2003 & 2007 on other computers, as well).  While I could close out other windows, the Word windows did not respond and would not even restore once I clicked off of them After 15 minutes of swearing, I went to the Task Manager; I noticed that the processor was hung up on Word; ultimately, I hit "End Process."  Is there any chance the text is anywhere?  I've already re-typed the document, but I'm still interested in finding the original, if it exists anywhere.
