Might be a corrupted bookmark on the list. Try doing File > Import and Export > Next > Export Favorites
That will export them to a bookmark.htm (like Netscape/Mozilla uses). Then open your favorites folder (usually: C:\Windows\Favorites) and delete everything in there.
Open IE again, and go to the Favorites menu. If it still crashes, then you may need to reinstall IE. If it doesn't crash, then do File > Import and Export > Next > Import Favorites, and import the bookmark.htm file you just created earlier. Then try the favorites menu again. If it crashes, unfortunately, the only thing you can do is get rid of your favorites, and start over*. If it doesn't crash, then you should be good to go.
*Even if you have to delete your favorites and start over, you can always open the bookmar.htm file in IE, and it will open as if you went to a web page, and all your favorites will be there. All you have to do is click on a link, and when it takes you to that page, just re-bookmark it.
