Games crashing

Hi. I've just formated my pc, due to it being slow... alot! xD
Anyways, I've tried using trainers for Sleeping Dogs and XCOM: Enemy Within, the latest released trainer ofcourse.

Both games are run through Steam.
And both games crash on me, for some reason.

For sleeping dogs, I only use unlimited health, as any other cheat would instantly crash the game. But the health option I can play with for about 15-30 min. then it crashes.

For XCOM, I first tried the editor (which I suck at), I only edited Health, Will, Defense and Offense.
It would let me play for about 15-30 min. aswell, until it as Sleeping Dogs, would crash me to desktop.

So all in all, its like Steam is catching the trainer and crashing the game. I remember you had some program you needed to run before the trainer to avoid being caught by steam, but I cannot find that program.


I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate, and have Bullguard as AV and Firewall.

Dunno if you need other info's, but feel free to ask.

Disable/uninstall all AV, firewall and other security software. right click run as admin on game and trainer. Steam is not causing the games to crash.

The trick of the trade is to put all trainers in a separate folder and include this folder in the "Excluded files and folders" of your anti-virus program.

Some anti-virus are a pain...and it would be reasonable to stay away from those pieces of..., since they mostly take control of your pc and give($) a limited protection.

The best for me is the Microsoft Security Essentials.

Hope it helps.

Thanks. Going to try that. Although the computer is fresh formated, the AV is a fresh install. And there wasn't any problem before I formated, so its not the AV that's causing the problem, as I had the same AV before, and it didn't cause any problems then.

But I am going to try your solution anyway, just to see if it is causing the problem.

Thanks for your responce.
