no idea then.
Wow... just wow
So I am having a problem with something I "purchased" *the membership anyway*, and I am getting no technical support at all besides stuff that either doesn't or won't help and stuff I can find at google for "all pc issues".
What the hell do you mean, my birth certificate expired?

There's also a possibilty the trainer file has got corrupted somehow on your computer ( sometimes turning back the clock to a system restore point can occasionally corrupt a file or two ) . A few days ago I had a short play on Tomb Raider Legend ( it's one of the older trainers here seeing as the game is getting on a bit anyway ) and I would get an error as soon as I started playing with the trainer enabled . It had worked perfectly before so I wondered what had happened because I haven't changed my AV or Firewall . So I thought ' what the hell , I'll redownload it and see if a fresh copy works ' . And fortunately last time I played the freshly downloaded copy of the Legend Trainer didn't crash the game . Computers are very temperamental things Rich . Download yourself a new copy of the trainer anyway just to rule out whether or not your trainer might have got corrupted by some chance . Also , like PWizard says , set your AntiVirus to ignore that trainer because a lot of AntiVirus programs see some trainers and NOCD's as viruses even though they aren't ( I have to exclude the Tomb Raider Underworld trainer from my AV because it sees it as a virus even though it most certainly isn't ) . Also , the DEP ( Data Execution Prevention ) feature on a lot of modern computers can kick in when some NoCD's and trainers try to load ( and even some old games ) so check your DEP settings too . Also , I know you're annoyed about the trainer not seeming to work Rich but it's impossible for these guys to give individual technical support to each and every member for each and every problem because there's 1000's of users here . Sure , if it was a common problem and an error that tons of people were having then they'd probably look into it because then it would seemingly be a problem with the trainer . But when it's working for almost everyone else without a problem then the evidence points to something on your computer either kicking in to prevent it working properly or something conflicting with it . The sheer nature of how trainers work ( injecting code into memory for the game to read to enable the infinite health or whatever ) means that some computers can see some trainers ( and it's extremely random which computers see which trainers or whichever NoCD's due to the vastly different architecture so many different computers are built on ) as threats while others don't have any problem at all . It's frustrating , I can understand that and I've been annoyed with how sometimes some games stop working just due to a graphic driver change or upgrading the graphic card itself but that's the nature of Pc's unfortunately . Sometimes some things don't work for inexplicable reasons . I don't have the UAC enabled on my comp due to the sheer fact that it prevents you editing config files and stuff and running certain programs so maybe you could look into that too at least as a test anyhow

Ship me your PC and I will fix the problem in 10 mins (prob by doing one of the things in the troubleshooting guide) and then ship it back to you. You pay for shipping both ways. Problem solved.

rich, crash at F1 is nearly ALWAYS something blocking the injection of the trainer contents into the game. if that gets blocked then the redirects within the game point to nothing which crashes the game. this is ALWAYS due to some form of protection software doing its job to try and protect you from malware and viruses which do the same thing as most trainers, i.e. inject code into another game. we've had dozens of people like you post that they tried everything and that they cannot get it to work. a good majority of these folks finally mail back and say that it was so and so software or their firewall or some such thing and when they stopped it or allowed the trainer as an exception it finally worked.
we don't like it when people struggle to use our trainers. but as chris said, without your system in front of us we cannot tell you what is blocking it from working. we have no way of knowing a person's abilites to even check these things on their own computers.
