Recover data after scrubbed virus on Vista PC

Specs: Windows Vista
Ok, I recieved a virus a few days ago and successfully removed it. To be on the safe side, and being a bit of a 'techno noob' i decided to delete the 'profile account' I was using when I received the virus. The account didn't remove so I decided to carry on using it, however every single bit of data has been removed, including all downloads. I'm not bothered about that. However, now when I use the account it acts as a guest account, and anything I save or download isn't there when I restart it. By mistake I used this account when writing an important piece of work, to be submitted no later than friday and forgot it wouldn't save. Is there anyway I can retrieve my work ?

Perhaps a system restore to the day you created the account will bring it back. That's what I would do. If that doesn't work, you may just be outta luck. :(
