Uploading a file using the FileUpload control was failing only with IE8

In my application I store location of local files attached .
Now IE8 has option to include the local directory path for the Internet Zone on the client-side.
Default value is false ,as a result IE7 and IE8 has different behaviour.
Content-Disposition: form-data; name="targetFile"; filename="C:\Users\<username>\Desktop\abc.txt"
· IE 8
Content-Disposition: form-data; name="targetFile"; filename="abc.txt"
Now , I can not say every user to change IE8 setting.I want to fix it in my code.
Please help me out.
Thanks in advance

Can't you do something like this:
String s = "C:\\Users\\<username>\\Desktop\\abc.txt"; // String s = "abc.txt"; int last = s.lastIndexOf("\\"); if(last != -1) s = s.substring(last+1); System.out.println(s);

That is a security hole in IE7 that has been fixed. All browsers other than IE do not give you the local file path either.
It's IE7 that's broken, not IE8. You should not be relying upon the local path.
