Windows 7: Looking at files backed up to a USB

Looking at files backed up to a USB

Heres my situation.
My laptops stuck in a startup repair loop. Start up repair is unable to fix the problem and sends me to recovery manager. However, before I move on to getting my computer back under control (wich will be on another thread on another day) I need help with something else.

Above all else, I want to preserve my favorites. Theres tons of websites and stuff on there that id never ever find again if I lost them now. I used the file backup program in recovery manager to back up stuff like music, pictures, documents, and among other things, internet settings.

What I want to do now is go into my flash drive and find where all my favorites are. I went to the only other computer in the house besides my hp, a mac, and plugged in my memory stick. What's in it is nothing I understand.

Now Im sitting in front of the mac, typing out my situation on the and just wishing there was a simple way to get my favorites up on the screen...Or at least understand enough of whats inside the memory stick to be able to extract them once my laptop is fixed.
