The less you have used the computer since the deletion the better your chances.
Try this freebie on it:

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Did you check the recycle bin. If was deleted recently it should still be there.

If it has gone from the recycle bin you could try some file recovery software

Thanks Derek

Have downloaded and tried that but it looks like I will need to do a deep scan which may take a while. Will try that tomorrow.
Thanks for taking the time to reply.

Recuva (Derek's first link) should recover the file if you haven't overwritten it.
