    I decided to do a fresh install of 3.1.1 without restoring from backup. I emailed a few things to myself but me being stupid as I am forgot to retrieve a few bookmarks before I restored.

    I have seen numerous solutions for exploring iPhone/iPod Touch backups for Mac but would like to know if there are any solutions for Windows. If anyone has a solution it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    It is possible to keep Bookmarks in an app like Delicious Bookmarks or Tasty (delicious.com Bookmarks) for example.

    If you have a lot of Bookmarks, this may be helpful.

    The Note Pad app, Awesome Note, reviewed here apparently will sync all notes to a Google account. .

    Go to the location itunes saves your backup files
    in windows XP its c:\documents and settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup
    in Vista
    C:\Users\USERNAME\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup

    then find a folder dated pre-upgrade, search "file contents" for a known bookmark. open the file(s) found in notepad and you should see the URLs plaintext within
