Also, make sure you are using IE 32bit version and not the 64bit version.

In IE Go to help > About Internet Explorer> Next to version you would find written as 64 bit version. If u dont find anything as such then you are using 32 bit.

Don't confuse a 64 bit operating system (Windows 7 or Windows 8) with the 64 bit version of Microsoft Internet Explorer.

The 64 bit version of MS Internet Explorer does not support multiple file uploads and a few other components.

Therefore, use the 32 bit version of MS Internet Explorer. This will allow you to use SharePoint to it's fullest, including using multiple file uploads.
