The trainer worked fine a week ago. Now when I start the game and activate the trainer, DEP closes ME2. And it isn't allowing me to add ME2 to the exception list. Can anybody help me with this?

I am having the same problem, but the trainer won't work at all now. F1 has no effect and the numpad buttons are still saying "on/off" but are not making any difference.

No joy even after reinstalling trainer and restarting the compter. Frustrating really as this trainer is much better than the cheats.

I suggest grabbing a good anti-virus scanner and running a full, comprehensive, whole-day-if-necessary scan. I suspect a virus infection.

There have been no Windows Updates or game updates that should cause DEP to suddenly hate your game.

Thanks Matri.
I don't think its a DEP problem though. After deleting trainer and reinstalling, I get no dep messages at all, but the trainer just doesn't work.

When I first installed it though, it worked fine and every function of the trainer did what it said on the tin. DEP allowed it then ( my DEP is always turned off except for vital windows aspects ). Nothing has changed on my computer from then so I can't see why it allowed it and then suddenly decide to stop it working.

And it also stopped working right in the middle of the game. There I was, blasting some mechs with mega health, suddenly I was dead with no trainer.

Makes me think that there may be a time limit imposed somewhere as other posters talk about similar experiences.

No. I just tried it. I did a full all day scan. Nothing. And I can't turn off DEP for the game. I'm just gonna re-install the game. Delete everything except the saves. If that works, I'll inform.

Ok, I did it. The trainer works fine without the DLC. But once I install it, the game crashes once the trainer is activated.

Many thanks Mr Moderator. I assumed your above command was to turn off DEP but instead it deleted a sys32/atapi file which windows needs to boot up.

I spent many hours trying to get my boot up disc to repair the missing file but to no avail. This led to a reload of vista and a loss of much material which I was going to back up at my next diary reminder.

I don't think I'll be visiting this site in the near future.
