How to recover data from a reformatted hard drive?

Recently, I found my laptop got filled with trojans and spyware, so I reformmatted it, thus deleting everything. Is there a way to recover my files from the reformatted hard drive?

First, formatted files are still stored on the hard drive, ther are just invisible or inaccessible. Only the file system index table erased but the real data is still intac in sectors of the hard drive.

Though recovering data from reformatted hard drive is possible, it seems a tech pro's job to perform and it seems far away from ordinary PC users. Since most PC users are non technician, what is the easies way to recover files after reformat?
