I have a very odd problemkj which has surfaced since installing the latest google chrome browser

I am running php version  5.2.5 and mysql client / server version 5.0.37
Internet explorer version 8 and chrome version 19, 0, 1084, 46 m

I have been using a php script for uploading files for years now - in Internet explorer version 8 and google chrome - with no problems. If I now upload a file to the computer using google chrome and the upload php page, the file is  uploaded but is corrupted. The file cannot be opened by google chrome OR internet explorer (chrome tells me there is an error opening the pdf and internet explore tells me there is no %pdf at start of file) - opening the uploaded file with a hex editor shows no data, or rather just a load of squares
If I replace the uploaded file with the original version copied to the upload location, it still cannot be opened by google chrome, but is opened by internet explorer with no problem.
If I upload / reupload the file with internet explorer version 8, the file is ok and it opens with both internet explorer AND google chrome.

Any ideas greatly appreciated
