Start-Run-msconfig to check. TMT likes Nvidia cards best, so if you have ATI, you might have some issues.....
If by scrambled, you mean like multi-colored blocks, you video card may be overheating....

I have an ATI card perhaps that is the culprit, have not updated to the latest drivers, going to see if that does the trick, thanks.
I upgraded the my ATi 3850HD driver to latest Cat 8.12 drivers and that did the trick, no more intermittent scramble or jumbling of the image.
I have also been getting occasional lockups starting some movies and found that setting the uDTStart.exe priority from "normal" to "above normal" seems to fix that. I think it may have to do with that cancelautoplay.exe that starts up with uDTStart.exe causing a conflict, not sure.
I tried to make a short cut to automatically do it at startup i.e below, but it remains on the "normal" setting after start up so you have to change it manually in the task manager.
C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\cmd.exe /c cd "C:\\Program Files\\ArcSoft\\TotalMedia Theatre\\uDTStart.exe" && start/AboveNormal
