SharePoint Multiple File Upload in Windows 7 64 bits

After a cilent of mine upgraded his OS to Windows 7 64 bits he lost his ability to upload multiple files. There are many posts on several issues with working on SharePoint content in Win7.

The solution is to use the IE 32 bits which is not the default browser in a common win 7 installation. It is related to SharePoint 2007 while 2010 has a replacement and lets you drag and drop files from Windows Explorer.
A nice article explaining this issue can be found here.
