emptied trash- any way to recover files

I threw away some game files(game saves) I thought were the install program. I don't have any recovery software just norton running. I tried unErase wizard but said to reinstall Norton. Is there anyway to get these files back? It was around 150MB and I havn't deleted anything since or restarted.

You can try this program, it was recommended by the wonderful Leo Laporte; the only problem is that in installing it you may write over the files you want to recover.

edit: duh, might be nice to add the url http://hccweb1.bai.ne.jp/~hcj58401/

Hmm, I just tried that and it didn't find any of the files. I tried virtuallab which found the files (after a 1 hour search) but wants $100 a gig for me to "save" them. The folder is only 6MB and VL will give me 1 meg free. What to do? The files are there, but I don't want to pay 1 damn penny to restore the folder.

I tried that program again and I restored everything ok. I didn't have the right drive selected. Thanks Dude, you saved me 84 hours of gameplay.
