This is a game trainer for Mass Effect. It injects code in order to override processes in the game so I can cheat. Much like a GameShark or Action Replay device to allow things like invincibility or unlimited ammo. It is completely harmless and should not be blocked. I have run it numerous times with the scanner turned off in order to play the game with it on. Please remove this from the scan as a threat.

Automated analysis was not able to determine that this file is malware. This file is
being sent for further processing and the DAT files will potentially be updated if
detection of this sample is warranted.
Due to the prevalence of network gateway AV products, it is important that all
submissions be zipped and the zip file password-protected (password - infected). Some
products will reject an email that contains a virus that is not sent in this way. In
addition, often we receive a file that appears not to have been infected, to find
later that the file was infected when it left the sender, and was cleaned somewhere
along the line.
Do you have a public link from where this trainer file can be downloaded from? This is needed to verfiy its origin.
There are 20+ vendors detecting this file currently.
It's from a member only site CheatHappens.com so you can't exactly link directly to the file without a login but it's located here: http://www.cheathappens.com/13879-PC-Mass_Effect_cheats. It's the first one on the list called MASS EFFECT MEGA TRAINER 1.02 (STEAM).
Hmmm. Been more than 24hrs and it still tries to quarantine it as soon as I unzip it to a folder location. I've manually run the update process in McAfee Security Center and even rebooted my PC but still quarantines the file the moment I extract it.
