I think deleting Aurora seems a tad extreme. Better to just close it
Whoever said "Cheaters never win" has never felt the true satisfaction of winning over your opponents. Cheating is very very addictive and fun and the same time! CHEATERS ALWAYS WIN!!!

I've been using Cheat Happens trainers for 15+ years, other random trainers, CoSMOS and Aurora and never in all those years have I had any problems with a ban from any game, game developer and/or platform!
Of course, you have to use common sense when using any trainers and/or third party modifying programs when playing games and that basically means, NEVER use such programs when playing Online or Online-only games (even if/in single-player; Blizzard I am looking at you now).
And, now, more recently, when using Aurora, remember to close it before running any above mentioned games. I personally, never set Aurora or similar programs to run with windows and I make sure to run them only when needed manually and close them immediately afterwards.
On a side note, I use one folder for all trainer and other related software for years and years, way before Aurora and never had any problems with that either! Of course, Windows Security and other Anti-virus programs before it, never got to get anywhere near that folder(s)!

@PWizxard - PWizard, i don't mean anything by it. I am merely a cautious gamer. No worries.
@Gangreenator As you well know, Activision, Rockstar, EA etc all have in their EULA's that you can be banned for any reason at any time. They dont even need to explain. You are playing at their leisure. So if COD decides to look for the Aurora folder one day, then you are banned forever with no recourse (possibly a refund but what good is that?). Has it happened? Idk, but if I were a game developer that would be the first thing I would look for.
And contrary to GlorFindel1983's point, the standalone versions of CH trainer did not save anything to common temp folders like Aurora does.
I traced Aurora's install and saw (wisely) it does not add any sort of registry keys, which is good.
I simply advise anyone that plays an online game to at least rename the aurora folder before running the online game. Then revert after you are done.
Can I suggest that future versions of aurora store settings in its own local folder instead of common temp/roaming/appdata folders?
Please advise! Happy training!

@duh1234 ---- you are incorrect. Many of our previous standalone trainers created/extracted files in the standard windows temp folder. FOR YEARS. NO PROBLEMS.
It doesn't matter where we put our files. If they are looking for "Aurora" then they will find it. It's silly to try and hide our software just so people can feel better about not getting banned when playing MP games.
This thread is ignorant and now closed. Now be sure and don't say the word "bomb" or "president" in the same phone conversation because the FBI is listening to all calls and will show up at your doorstep the next day.
