Close any trainers (CH wise) and games. I didn't have to close out of Steam however.
I went to %appdata%\..\local\temp\ (i.e. C:\Users\\appdata\local\temp\) and found a file called "CH.dll" and deleted it. If you are getting the "try again" message, be sure to close out any trainers running (check task manager as well).
Once that file was deleted, I started the desired trainer (in this case Borderlands) and then started the game (from Steam). This causes the CH.dll file to return (this is expected).
Once in-game, I pressed F1 and the game continued as normal. Tested some of the options and everything worked as expected!
(I also did repeat testing on this just to make sure!)
So, if anyone out there is still seeing this problem, have at it!
(sorry in advanced if someone else already beat me to the punch or if there is an FAQ explaining this already!)
dont get any antivirus things just that as sson as i enable the trainer on the steam version(normal game) it just pretty much crashes after loading in my char
1: start trainer 2: start game 3: main menu 4: press F1 5: choose single player 6: choose char and press Load 7: game starts loading then halts 8: ends up pressing alt+ctrl+delete and enter task manager only too see that the game has crashed(windows dialogue box)
tried the tricks some has mentioned about deleting the CH.dll in the appdata/temp/ folder
would really like this thing to work using Win 7 Home Premium x64 with MSE(security essentials(havent made any pop ups about virus/trojan)) Steam version with all 3 DLC's

update: for some wierdo reason after rebooting the comp i thought what the heck lets give it another go and now it works :P
i've tried the tricks posted before, rebooted the system, typed the trainer in execptions, turned off my Windows Firewall, turned off the Essentials...nothing helped, everytime the General Protection Fault. I think there must be a problem with the Trainer and Windows 7 or Steam GOTY. It is the first trainer which wont work with any game on this machine. I use many trainers from your page, but this hasnt happened at any time. It would be nice of you, if you invesigate the problem again.
this new trainer is messed up. i keep getting C++ runtime errors that ends the game with the trainer running i get them without the trainer running i don't get them. so it has something to do with the trainer - System

I'm betting when you ran the game without the trainer, you just let it idle (or stayed in one area) rather than actually playing? At the games main menu, click Options, then Game Options, then deactivate Stats Tracking. That's what is crashing your game, not the trainer.
Currently no one has found a way to completely alleviate the crash problems introduced in the new patch, but turning off the new features seems to help a lot of people.
Gearbox has requested that you deactivate the feature anyway if you are using cheats because it will contaminate the data they are looking to collect.
