Regarding the Cheats & Hints.

I`m very unsure of all the trainers for this game, I mean I have downloaded loads of trainers before and about 20% of them are virus / trojans etc. But I`we tried nearly all of the CoH trainers from various sites, as soon as I click the zip/rar archive my antivirus tells me its some "trojan agent 4xxx" If I choose to ignore it, it just keeps on telling me it uintil I delete or quarantine it etc. Is this my ****ed up anti virus program or simply that the trainers are infected? Can someone please verify some safe trainers in that case?

Thanks; Jan N

Hi
You are right in some way, be cause trainers change the values of the memory addresses which game loads, when a game is running in
you PCs background trainer finds them and alters them.
So in result anti-virus will spot this interceptor as a trojan software just like other trojans that loads on memroy.
There is no problem with you AV and your PC it's just the nature of the trainers to look HOSTILE !!

Your AV is using heuristic scanning which picks out malware by program behavior rather than the traditional signature database. This method can save you from zero day malware, but a poorly designed heuristic engine (such as AVGs) will send false positives.

Well it's not 100% poor, you know actually i have never seen any other programs that gets block like that, but just for the record
NOD32 do not warn about trainers.

about a month ago I downloaded the trainer for the original game by caliba.It worked really well. Then I purchased Company of Heroes opposing fronts, which 'forces' you to update, all the update patches available before you can play the game. It also uninstalls Company of Heroes. The only trainer left is the one cheathappens holds for its paying members. Thats fine I don't mind paying for a good trainer, the writer deserves at least that. I decided to delete the game and install the original on one computer and the latest on another. But for some reason the trainer I used is now not available; it seems to have been replaced with the name mega trainer (for the original game) but it now reports a virus on both of my machines, and will not even open. I have never had this problem before and I have downloaded many trainers from here.
