By "account," do you mean you deleted the Bitcoin client?

How exactly did you accidentally delete it, can you remember?

You could try and use a tool like Recuva made by Piriform to try and recover the wallet.dat off your hard drive. But I'm not sure what you mean by deleted your account. Could you clarify what was deleted and what state your computer is currently in?

Have you set up a new account to log into? If so I think you might be able to recover the wallet.dat.

Turn off your computer immediately! Then boot from another system and recover deleted wallet.dat file using specialized software.
If you continue to use this hard drive - you may lose your wallet with all your bitcoins forever! It can be overwritten by new data.

The wallet.dat file is located in [Username]\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin. You can get to your account's folder by typing "%APPDATA%\Bitcoin" (without the quotes) in the address bar of Windows Explorer. But if that folder and the files in it were deleted, you have to use file recovery software...

 All it shows is the now files.
 How do I file recovery software?

By the way, check your C:\Users\ directory (or C:\Documents and Settings\ for Windows XP). Can you see your previous user's directory?

Try Recuva Free or something like that.

I would use Recuva. Just google it then install it. Once you have it open select other as the file type you are looking for and pointing to the directory C:\Users\ and have it scan that for deleted files. Once it's done look through the list of files it finds and see if the wallet.dat is there and then restore the file.

You did not give us much info about your system. Is it Windows or Linux?

If it is windows:
on XP machine wallet.dat lives in "C:\Documents and Settings\<login>\Application Data\Bitcoin" Check whether it still exists. If not try to recover it using "specialised software":

Paper wallet is king.

Or, if you are really, really dedicated, commit the address and private key to memory.
