This pc is only for games and has no antivirus. Closest thing to a antivirus is Windows Defender and the entire trainer folder is added to the exceptions. Just to make sure no issues. I have hundreds of trainers from here and other places and others work fine.
I guess I will redownload the trainer again and make sure no old ones still are around and hope for the best... is this trainer working for everyone else? Windows 10 Pro with all updates?
I had a similar problem and fixed it by excluding the trainer's executable from Windows Defender scanning process, even if I had excluded the entire folder already 😐
No need to apologize, we've all been through unseen troubles before 😉
