Ok, so, before everyone jumps on the "did you follow the trouble shooting" train, let me soothe your ruffled feathers. Ive been using trainers from this site for many, many years now. Never had a problem. When i double click on a trainer it would always start up for me. All pc settings have stayed the same, no changes. Ive used the trainers the same exact way, up to this point. I have done nothing different this time.
Now for some reason, within the last two days or so, something has happened when i try and start a trainer. I click on "Doom" trainer and nothing happens. So i tried a couple more trainers i have on my desktop, SAME ISSUE. Now, out of the 5 trainers i currently have on my desktop, only one of them actually starts and that one is "Sol064bit-Plus8-Trainer". Thats the only one that actually starts. I started digging into this problem simply because i try and keep my pc in good running order. i dont like it when programs dont work correctly. i started taskmanager and noticed when i click on the trainers that dont start up i notice "COM Surrogate" (sometimes two of the same process) pop up on taskmanager, then goes away after a couple seconds. Def seems to be correlated with the trainers not working.
Any thoughts on wtf is/has happened? Im at a loss here. I have no idea what cause the trainers from not starting. The only two changes thats maybe effected them is i updated nvidia gfx driver. Looking into the nvidia driver now.
