I have a bunch of favorites (bookmarks) from a old machine in folders. How can I import them in windows 7? I don't have a proper exported backup.

If you can get access to the disk, the Windows favorite are stored in

c:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Favorites 



Depending on your version of Windows. You can just copy the shortcut files to the same location on your new machine.
