Your problem is with Avast. Even though it says it's disabled, it really isn't. It's one of the reasons I stopped using it since you can never really disable it. What you need to do (and I'm not even sure how to at this point with Avast) is figure how to add the trainer to the exclusions list for Avast so that Avast doesn't even scan the trainer. This will be the only way to use the trainer.
Thanks, I added the entire Steam folder and the trainer folder to the exceptions list in Avast! and disabled the Shields as well. It now works without looping. I had the same problem when I was using AVG free before as well with another game.
Right-Click Avast! icon
-> Open avast! user interface
--> REAL-TIME SHIELDS tab
---> File System Shield
----> 'Expert Settings' button
-----> Exclusions tab
------> 'Add' button
-------> 'browse' button
--------> Search and check-off the folder than your trainer is in.
