I have never used a trainer before so I am sure that what is happening here is that I have no idea what I'm doing, but I would appreciate any help that could be given.
I individually purchased the trainer for Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms.
I downloaded it, extracted both the trainer file ant the readme file to my desktop, ran the file as an administrator and initially the Cheat Happens logo saying that it is customized for me pops up then the file opens in notepad for some reason with all kinds of messed up looking text.
What did I do wrong?
I am running and old computer with Windows 7 as it's OS and windows firewall is the only form of protection currently active and it doesn't seem to be blocking anything.
Can anyone give me some help with this situation?

Not sure what happend, but you can try this maybe:

1. Open Command Prompt by typing cmd or command in RUN dialog box.

2. Now provide following command:

assoc.exe=exefile

Thanks for the advice.
I tried both ways suggested on that website.
I downloaded there file and also did the manual ways of using the command prompt but still the Trainer opens in notepad.
I have no idea what I'm doing.

Right click on the file that is opening with notepad and go down to properties. In the general tab press "change" next to the 'open with'. Select the application you would like the file to open with by default.

First restore the system to defaults for opening exe's

Is Microsoft Security Essentials installed? if so set exclusions to trainers or a folder where you put the trainers

You need to upgrade your PC because I too faced this issue and ended up changing my PC.
For this, i bought a new PC, a new adjustable Link desk, then install windows 10 and then trainers start running.
