    Using IE8, Windows XP, and SP3. When I am asked to upload a file (resume)
    from my system, click on Browse, My Documents opens then after about 3-5
    seconds, My Documents window closes and I am not able to upload a file. This
    just started within the last 2-3 weeks.

    Hi,
    1. Start Internet Explorer without add-ons by right-clicking the IE icon on
    the desktop. Choose Start without add-ons.
    or
    from Start> Programs> Accessories> System tools> Internet Explorer (no
    add-ons)
    If the problem goes away, a browser add-on is causing it.

    For troubleshooting information see:

    2. Try resetting security settings back to default. Internet Options>
    Security> Default level.

    3. With the warning that a reset will delete AutoComplete data, such as
    passwords and you will have to reinstall or re-enable browser add-ons, use
    the Reset Internet Explorer Settings button (Internet Options> Advanced.)

    Useful for recovering stored passwords before you clear all stored login
    data:

    What a reset of IE settings will do:

    4. A third-party security program may be causing the problem. Disable
    third-party antivirus, security suites, firewalls, etc. *only* long enough
    to test the affected site. If a security program is the culprit, look
    through settings/options for the feature which may be doing this.

    Hope this helps,
