If you updated your driver directly from the ATI web site and you deleted the BadDriver file, per our FAQs at http://forums.adobe.com/thread/769303?tstart=0 , then I'm not sure what else to tell you.
This is the only solution that I know of for this problem -- and I've never known it to fail.
And you're right! As it turns out, it wasn't directly related to Premiere Elements. I was running Elements in a sandboxed environment that probably prevented the program from interacting with the video card in a certain way. It works fine outside of the sandbox.
Unfortuntely, many security programs make running an NLE difficult, at best.
While editing, it is much better to unplug from the Internet, and turn the security software OFF, especially if it isolates the program from the system, or the OS, or if it features real-time scanning, where working files get locked during the scan.
Good luck, and thanks for reporting the fix,
