    Just a heads up - it seems that recent update of ESET messes with the CH trainers until they are excluded - all options randomly deactivate within minutes or seconds from activation.

    I initially thought that my problems were specific to the game (Mafia III Definitive Edition), but after same issues showed up on Horizon Zero Dawn I started digging and excluding trainer in ESET fixed the problem.

    I hope this will save you from wasting points on requesting trainer update

    I would contact ESET and ask that they remove these false positives from their database or they will be losing you as a customer.

    I've had almost no problems with ESET. But that's dependent on my keeping up with the Exclusions. If I keep them current with all the games I'm playing I have no problems. Excluding just a folder wasn't always working so I started excluding each trainer and it's been fine since then. If I forget, ESET can be a pain in the rear. Since that would be on me, I'm ok with that.

    It turns out it wasn't ESET. It was aText (software for automating text replacement).

    During that previous troubleshooting, I disabled shortcut for disabling all cheats at once (by clearing field for it).

    Recently problem came back, but instead of randomly disabling trainer, now there is only "Hotkeys muted/unmuted" message. Closing aText gets rid of it.

    Is there any sample app that I could point aText developers to so they can check what triggers this?

    I have an update - together with developers of aText we've figured out what was the problem. Quote from them:

    In a recent update, aText sends a "none / zero" to detect if aText is suspended by the system.
    Usually applications should ignore this "none / zero" key because it has no meaning.


    They provided me with a special version of aText that has option to disable this and once I did it, problem was solved with aText still running (second I re-enabled it, problem came back).

    I have disabled all keyboard shortcuts for disabling cheats or muting keys, yet this still triggered this "Keys muted/unmuted" message. So there may be some bug, making CH trainers react to this "none / zero" key even though keyboard shortcut for this option was removed from settings.
