How to undo "restore all items" in Recycle bin

    Yesterday I accidently hit "restore all items" in my recycle bin.
    Suddenly my desktop became cluttered with 6 months worth of junk! Also
    my favorites, start menu, and documents folder are now totally cluttered
    with stuff I deleted long ago.

    Is there any way to undo it? Or do I have to manually go through all my
    favorites, menus, documents, desktop, etc and re-delete stuff manually
    based on my not-very-accurate memory?

    HELP!!!

    No way to re-delete them, sorry. You'll have to manually delete them again.
    And make sure to empty the recycle bin. You should not leave things in the
    recycle bin for six months. Empty it regularly(once a week is good).
