I don't think they would require ALL the files - surely a small sample would do the trick, assuming the trigger is similar for most of them.

At any rate, is submitting files for security analysis considered "sharing premium content"? I know the folks from Avast have some pretty strict rules about treating the received files and I'm also pretty sure that a "do not abuse, judge or anything" is a pretty major part of them.

This should be fixed according to avast. I no longer get the error when I launch the lost planet trainer.

Having some problems with Avast. After having created a new account here I did some reading, found this thread and figured I'd check to see if I could download a trainer without my Avast kicking in.

I tried to download the "Fable 3 - Trainer 1.1.1.3" but my Avast blocks the download with a warning about a Win32:Evo-gen infection!

So I added the Cheat Happens URL to the Exclusions list (I did click the "Add" button) and tried to download the file again but Avast still blocked the download!

I tried downloading trainers for Divinity 2 Dragon Knight Saga and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, both downloads were allowed, my Avast did nothing, no warning and no blocked download!

So I tried the Fable 3 trainer once again, but Avast still blocked the download with the same warning about a Win32:Evo-gen infection!

I then disabled the Shields for 10 minutes, tried the download once more and, obviously, was able to download the file.

However, upon trying to extract the "Fable 3 - Trainer 1.1.1.3" files from the archive Avast immediately moved the .exe to the Virus Chest with another warning about it being infected! At that point I just submitted the file to Avast as a False Positive, so now I have to wait for them to clear the file!

Once my subscription is up, Avast! is going and I'll find a new anti virus.

About your Avast! deleting your files when you try to extract them. I can help you with that. You have to create a folder Avast will skip over and not scan. If your using the trainer manager, the folder C:\Users\User\Documents\My Trainers should be put on the exempt list. If your opening the file elsewhere you want that foler to be exemot to.

Open avast
Click on settings (if you have a paid subscription it's on the top by account)
You'll see a list. It says Basic, Updates, Cloud Services, etc.
Find Globel Exclusions.
Enter the folder path that you want Avast to skip scanning for.

You should be able to open your trainer files now. Sometimes trainers use a temp file and if that happens you need to turn off file shield when you want to use it. I know Baldur's Gate Enahnced and Mars War Logs are two trainers that work that way. I didn't want to expemt my temp folder so I just turned off the file system shield and then lanuched the trainer.

I hope some of this helps in some way.

Thanks for the heads up, but I realised later that I didn't need to wait for Avast, I just went into the Virus Chest and restored the file from there.

Seeing as I always extract any archive to an empty "Temp" folder, that's where Avast had grabbed it from and restoring it from the Virus Chest simply put it back there. I then moved it to the folder I'd created for CH trainers and then added that folder to the General Exclusions list!

So now I can run the trainers without any interference from Avast, although I still sent the file to them as a False Positive!

You'd think that all anti-virus companies would know about game trainers these days, but I guess some of them just refuse to do anything to prevent game trainers being flagged with false positives!

disabling "DeepScreen" under antivirus setting seems to work, I set up exclusions for the trainer folder and the temp dir with no luck until I tried turning this off. Ran it once with it off then turned it back on and was able to rerun the trainer with no further issues.

Issue seems to stem from the very first DeepScreen of the trainer, which does a deep scan the first time a new exe runs, get one run of the exe with it off and your good to go.
