Sorry, but you're going to have to systematically eliminate third party apps and processes until you determine what is causing the trainer to malfunction. There's not way for us to know what might be installed on your system that is intefering.

Well, thanks for your help anyway. Just as a last-ditch, I made sure that nothing else non-essential is running.
Before starting the game, there are 7 things running in my processes list: Steam.exe*32, explorer.exe, dwm.exe, taskhost.exe, atieclxx.exe, winlogon.exe, taskmgr.exe.
If anybody comes up with an idea, I'm more than willing to try. Apart from that, the only software on this system is Steam games, iTunes, Adobe CS5 Master Suite, Acrobat 9 Pro, Office 2010 Pro, Firefox, Oracle Java, Adobe Flash Player, and CCCP drivers.
Graphics:2x ATI Radeon HD 5970 running in Crossfire mode (total of 4 GPU's, 2 per card, with a total of 4GB GDDR5 Video RAM)
Display:1920x1080p Panasonic 36" HDTV
Hard Drives: C: is a 128GB Corsair Solid State Drive D:, E:, F: are all 1TB Western Digital Caviar Blacks, SATA6. The program files for gaming are stored on E:, Windows and general programs (Firefox, for example) are on the SSD.
Optical: One HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM 16x Burner One BD-ROM Reader
The mainboard/processor can dynamically overclock as they see fit, but I tried turning that off in case it messed with anything. Especially if the memory dynamically overclocks, because I know trainers are based on memory. I turned off dynamic overclocking in one of my attempts.
I don't know if you need any more stats, but this is what I know off the top of my head. So, thanks again!
Can you try completely emptying your Windows temp folder? Sometimes a dll gets stuck there.
Okay, just tried that. There was a lot of old files, but same result after clearing them out and rebooting. I cleared out the regular ones, as well as clicking on the "clear system files" section (or whatever that button is called).
I don't think it is hardware. Does other trainers work ok?
Also try what Pwizard said and try clearing out your temp files.
EDIT: Unless are you connected to your TV using an HDMI cable and using HD sound from the GPU's?

This is the first trainer I am using - it wouldn't even be necessary if they hadn't disabled dev console cheats with their patches. I understand completely why they did, but why they had to remove it for single player campaign mode, I don't know. Essentially, I am just trying to replace the ability to have unlimited ammo, energy, and health. The rest of the trainer is really just a bonus.
As far as the TV, it is indeed connected via HDMI. The HD5970's spit out 2 DVI ports and 1 mini-displayport on each card. On the primary card I have a DVI-HDMI dongle.
That said, audio goes directly from computer to external speakers from the integrated audio "card"...I guess chipset is a better term?
