I know you can use a regular expression validator to restrict what kinds of files can be uploaded, but the user is still allowed to choose whatever they want, it just won't work.  Don't know of any way of restricting it in the Browse dialog.

You simpley can not do that with the htmlcontrols, the client doesn't what they want to to with their machines
best bet is an activeX or a java applet

Good luck
