Some trainers won't extract...

This has happened a lot to me with multiple trainers from different games. It starts with a notification that Windows has blocked the trainer from extracting, to which I go into properties and unblock it. Then, it ends with it extracting for LITERALLY a millisecond and disappears, meaning it's being deleted almost as soon as it's extracted. It's really frustrating, because it the last hope for my game because the others won't work.

I truly would, but I have one of the most stubborn AV ever known: McAfee. I swear, it has to purposely make it a pain to do it manually.

Well, you don't really need to disable your Anti-Virus entirely, you can just make the .zip file holding the trainer an "exception". This option SHOULD generally be in the "Settings" menu.

I tried that, and when I said McAfee was stubborn, I didn't expect it to be take lightly (Sorry if that sounded rude). Apparently McAfee detects the trainer file itself as a Trojan, not the zip. When it gives me the option, I restore it, but as soon as I try to access it, it ends right back in quarantine. I tried not accessing it, and instead directly making an "Exception" (In McAfee's case, "Trusted".), but as soon as I reach it's location in the "Add Trusted..." menu, it once again detects it and sends it to quarantine.

RETIRED MOD
Make mcafee not run@startup.
Type msconfig on start>run and go on "startup", untick the program and do the same on "services" (tick "hide all MS services to make it easier to find).
