If you can open IE at all, then while its open go to "file" then "Import and Export" and export the favorites to a html file and place it in your documents folder. Then you can use a Flash drive to copy the html file to it. You can then transfer the file to any computer and access the files from any browser.

Well you can try this.

One thing is that if your hard drive has crashed very badly there may be no files that you can recover.
