Hello,

I just tried to use my first trainer on Windows 10, when I double click to load, it comes up as customised for me blah blah and then asks me "How do I want to open the file" yet I cannot choose to just open the EXE. Any idea's?


Regards,

Mine does the same thing, it will download into C drive but then I have to go there and extract the .exe file. I have a partitioned drive so I'll drop the .exe file onto D drive trainers folder after that. Not really necessary but it keeps things tidy. Your virus protection will probably kick up a stink so you'll have to put the .exe file into your list of excluded files.

Shorter answer, no you can't just open the .exe file.

I upgraded to Windows 10 a couple weeks ago and aside from messing up my email contacts it's gone pretty well.

I found a way for me.

What I had to do was turn off my AVG Antivirus, (Which then turned on Windows Defender) and then turn off Windows Defenders, quickly extract my trainer, open and use and then for some unknown reason Windows Defender or Malware Bytes turned back on and removed it. So it IS the software side within Windows 10.

I am unsure if there is a better fix for this, but I had to disable my stuff, quickly use with a small window before they was automatically removed, because they show as loggers or something on my PC... Otherwise Windows was telling me they are viruses/trojans or just not even sure how to load the file.

Just as an off chance option here but... did you just try right clicking and running as admin? That's usually 99% of the time the answer to said issue. I don't think I had any of these issues when I upgraded to 10... well actually one did this but like I said, just right clicking and running it as admin let it run correctly. Give it a try.

The easy fix is to uninstall AVG and try another program([url]www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2388652,00.asp' target='_blank'>Link) that doesn't constantly tag false positives.
No matter what program you choose, here is a simple thing to do.
Create a folder just for your trainers on your desktop or wherever. Then go into you A/V options and find the exclusion list. Click to add location. Search for your trainer folder and add it to the exclusion list.
Then when you open your downloaded trainer, just drag and drop right into that folder. This will make all your trainers "invisible" to your A/V scanners.

AVG has never caused any issues. That couldnt be fixed.

Tell it to ignore the trainer location and the file. Extracting the trainer is never picked up with avg. You will also need to tell it to ingnore the tmp file that they use as well. Other than that. AVG works perfectly fine.

Yeah any program can be used and fixed. That is why I said to add the trainers to the exclusion list.
I used AVG for years and with trainers with no problems do that. The only reason I switched from AVG is because there are other free programs out there that score much higher on AV tests.

Whatever works best for you... is the best program for you to use.
