rar the exe with win rar then go to www.cheathappens.com/aboutus.asp and click on H. MICHAEL YURGALAVAGE it should open your email and attack the rar file to that and politly tell he what it is for and maybe he will sort it.
Go to your Binaries folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Mass Effect 2\Binaries
In said folder you have 4 file types that you will need. First are the MassEffect2.exe and MassEffect2.par files. Delete both of these.
Next rename your ME2Game.exe and .par files to MassEffect2.exe and MassEffect2.par.
Run your new MassEffect2.exe as admin and presto! It works with the trainer.
Essentially you are replacing the MassEffect2 game files with the ME2Game files.
Also, for future reference, if you are having trouble with your game starting, delete the MassEffect2.exe file, and your MassEffect2Config.exe file. Go to your origin ME2 game and repair/install a fresh game. (This will only re-download those game files that you are missing ie. MassEffect2.exe, ME2Game.exe and MassEffect2Config.exe). Simply redo the whole renaming process and you're good to go once again. It's a real shame we need to go through all that just to get a work-around to run the game thanks to Origin's laziness.
Enjoy your further gaming experience!

Try the information i posted, it works. I'm actually doing it right now since its been awhile since i played the game and it works.
Rename the original MassEffect2 file into something else(i used MassEffect20) and then rename the ME2Game file into MassEffect2
