The Adobe.com Plus will have nothing to do with updating the program.
For the manual update, have you gone to the Adobe Update Page?
To download, make sure that your firewalls and pop-up blockers are turned OFF.
That will get you the 8.0.1 update file. Close out of PrE and then Extract the file and full folder structure. Once Extracted, run the executable to update.
Thanks for trying to help Bill, I made sure anti-virus and blockers were turned off, downloaded to entire file, (twice now) extracted everything into another folder. But, both methods of updating say I am up to date... Heck, maybe I am.
Is there another way (other than the splash screen and "About" drop-down) of determining what version is currently being used?

Go to C:/PROGRAM FILES/ADOBE/PREMIERE ELEMENTS 8.0 and look at the dlls.
If any of the dlls (Display.dll, for instance) are dated after February of 2010, you have the updates.
If what you say is true, then I can stop trying to update... my Display.dll file is dated 4/28/2010.
I was hoping I could find a way to get some kind of magical update that would make everything work fine.
What a headache! Maybe this is why Microsoft stopped including Windows Movie Maker with Windows!
If the update to PrE 8.0.1 is not helping you, please give the full details of your system, your Project Preset, and your source files, plus what issues you are having. This ARTICLE will give you tips on the types of info that will be so very useful.
Good luck, and let us know about those requests,
