Customized Trainer Crash on Activation

Recently I downloaded the ME2 trainer for my Renegade playthrough. Bless you awesome people for allowing me to be a total and utter ass without having to worry I get shot in the face.

I made use of the trainer a few times, and even successfully customized it. But now it stopped working. That is, the trainer runs, but it crashes upon activation:
- Pressing F1 will freeze up the trainer
- CPU cycles will be devoured
- "ON ON ON OFF OFF OFF AC AC ON ON OFF AC AC" etc.

So I removed CH-Trainer-Keys.dat. It worked. The trainer didn't crash anymore, but it uses the default numpad keys. So I remade the CH-Trainer-Keys.dat using the app from your site.
I started the trainer, which found the .dat file, and once more the trainer crashed upon pressing F1.

The only significant thing that has changed were the following windows updates:

KB978251 (support.microsoft.com/kb/978251)

KB979099 (support.microsoft.com/kb/979099)

KB890830 (support.microsoft.com/kb/890830)

KB975560 (support.microsoft.com/kb/975560)

KB978262 (support.microsoft.com/kb/978262)

KB971468 (support.microsoft.com/kb/971468)

Any ideas on how to solve this?

SYSTEM SPECS:
OS: Win7 x64
CPU: Intel Quad Q6600 @ 2,4 GHz
MEM: 6 GB
VID: Nvidia GeForce GTX 285
SND: Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi
MSC: Hauppage WinTV-HVR-2200; Wacom Bamboo tablet

And yes, my drivers are up to date.

Sounds like your AV, OS permissions, or other security software is blocking the trainer from properly accessing the key file.

Three reasons why that wouldn't be the case:

1. There have been no changes in my AV/Firewall software since when it worked.
2. Other CH trainers work fine.
3. CustomTrainer activation through F1 started my audio codec six times. Switching to another audio codec didn't help. The "Game Not Found" sound (due to not having started ME2) works fine on the customized trainer.

Is it possible the customized trainer conflicts with the game itself because of aforementioned Windows Updates?

When it did work did you use the original assigned keys.

Have you added the trainer and customizer to your AV's exclusion settings?

Have you changed the game in any way since it worked? Such as the unlikely event that a DLC may have changed one of the core files of the game required for the trainer to work?

>> AV's update their signatures all the time.

2. Other CH trainers work fine.

>> Like I said, this trainer uses a new security template. Do not assume that any trainer will work like any other.

The Windows updates have nothing to do with it.

When I successfully used it, I had already customized the trainer. The vanilla trainer would work, so sans the keys, but my numpad isn't in very good shape right now.

Have you added the trainer and customizer to your AV's exclusion settings?
Yes. I have also completely disabled both the firewall and the anti-virus, and even shut down the services.
