    You might make sure your php.ini has file uploads allowed before doing anything else. If file uploads are enabled, then I think you should call your host, or look at their support docs.

    CHMOD is a Unix/Linux command; it's best not to set a Unix/Linux directory to 777.

    It looks like your web server is an IIS Server "C:\WINDOWS". You need to make sure your script has permissions to write to the directory you want to use for uploads. Your web server should have an IIS Admin Tool that will let you configure directory permissions.

    One method that may work for you is to first create the upload directory with the script using mkdir ... as long as PHP has permissions to make a dir in your hosting account it will then "own" the directory it creates; this usually insures that the PHP script then has access to it.

    You haven't posted anything that tests the uploaded file, maybe you have that elsewhere in the script, if not then you may want to take a look at how to test an uploaded file before allowing it to actually live in your website. You can look at this documentation and if you want you could explore the PEAR Library
