Release notes for July 8 Update
[Trusted Mode]
  • Players now launch CS:GO in Trusted mode by default
  • While in Trusted mode, third party software will be blocked from interacting with CS:GO
  • To allow third party software to interact with CS:GO, you can start the game with the -untrusted launch option. Note that in this case your Trust score may be negatively affected.
  • A backwards compatibility label “1.37.5.9” is temporarily available for players experiencing difficulty launching the latest version of the game.
  • If you are a third party developer, all of your DLLs that interact with CS:GO must be digitally signed.
  • If your customers would like to use third party software that is not digitally signed, they can start the game with the -insecure launch option. Note that they will not be able to join VAC servers with this option.

Edit 1: Some more information about Trusted Mode here

Edit 2: Some more FAQ's about Trusted Mode added

[MISC]
  • Fixed a regression to reenable twitch.tv streams in the “Watch tab”
  • In addition to the launch options, you can also control Trusted Mode from the in-game settings (but a game restart is required)
  • net_graph now displays the game's current "ClientVersion" parameter next to choke statistics

[Possible fixes for issues]
  • Mouse lag + FPS drop
    1. Lowering polling rate of mouse to 250 if available.
    2. Using '1.37.5.9' version in the beta tab.

  • Unable to start game in Trusted Mode
    1. Un-check 'Run as Administrator' for csgo.exe
    2. Using '1.37.5.9' version in the beta tab.
    3. Browse local files and find trustedlaunch.cfg file here:

    userdata -> <random_id> -> 730 -> local -> cfg

    Open it with Notepad, if any DLL's are listed, that's what is probably causing the error.

Don't think so. ESEA will already be compliant with it with a digital signature.

ESEA's servers aren't VAC enabled anyway. Faceit on the other hand probably already has gotten digitally signed.

Probably it doesn't have a digital signature yet. That's why.

Is it the problem with vavle, or i can fix it myself?

So the the way it looks to me is play with lag or play with cheats...nice choice to make thanks valve.
I have made no changes to my files and also revalidated my files but i still get the error that i cannot use VAC servers. What is going on? Is it a bug?

I think you'll have to play without it until NVIDIA releases a digitally signed version of it.
Don't think you can fix it rn.
While in Trusted mode, third party software will be blocked from interacting with CS:GO : What is this third party software? I installed the game through Steam. Why am I not allowed to join the servers?
taki Jul 9, 2020 @ 12:22am 
public cheats will be more limited after this ;D

It's probably a compatibility issue mentioned in one of the points in the patch notes.
"1.37.5.9" - Go to the beta tab in CS:GO properties and select this version. Will fix it.

OBS didn't pick up CSGO until i put -untrusted in the launch options? If i didn't then my game would lag every time i moved my cursor...

Yep, there are some issues with OBS and other overlays. Probably because it doesn't have a digitally signed version yet.
