Bundling, thus the silent download of tammgf119.sys, may be bypassed by going for the advanced installer instead of the custom one.

tammgf119.sys Distribution Method

tammgf119.sys may have entered the system through a bundled download. To elaborate, the user downloaded the application alongside another free product available for download on the Web. Bundling may seem like a shady method, but it is not illegal. As a matter of fact, the user can uncheck any additional products. To do so, he has to choose the advanced installer over the automatic one. Executing automatic installations is a common mistake among users. It is safe to assume that third party developers and marketers are aware of the fact and often take advantage of the users’ negligence.

tammgf119.sys Characteristics and Risk Evaluation

Ad-supported applications may not be malicious in design, but they do cause certain issues to a system. Here is a short list of general problems associated with adware running in the background:

  • Addition of tracking/ session cookies to the browser employed to collect PII (personally identifiable information).
  • Constant display of advertisements (pop-up/ pop-under windows, banners, in-text ads) clicking on which may cause unsafe browser redirects.
  • Random page texts are turned into hyperlinks to increase the chance of user interaction.
  • Browser and system slowdowns and under-performance, the Internet connection may also be affected by adware.

      The manual uninstall does nothing? Tammgf119 messes with your files. You can’t find it just by trying to uninstall it from control panel.

      Tammgf119.sys is a very specific threat, since it is believed to modify your system files and it prevents the antimalware software to clean your computer from it. There are two methods to remove it:

      METHOD NUMBER 1 (Easier way)

      1.Using an alternative browser, because it may disable your browser functions. If you are having problems on Internet Explorer, refer to Mozilla Firefox for downloading antimalware software, for example.
      2. Using a usb drive. In case you have another computer, download the antimalware software on that computer. After that use a flash drive to transfer the installer and install it on the infected PC then scan it.
      3. Using Safe Mode. In case you have troubles while scanning for malware with the software, restart your computer then as soon as it restarts, start pressing F8 after which choose ‘Safe Mode With Networking’. After the computer boots up in safe mode scan with the antimalware.

      If the threat is discovered after a scan, erase it, then reboot your PC and you should be fine.

      METHOD NUMBER 2 (MANUAL REMOVAL)

      In case you want to try to eliminate it manually (the more complicated and time-consuming way), please follow these steps:

      Step 1: Task Manager kill of tammgR119.sys/tammgF119.sys
      Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc altogether in order to start Windows Task Manager. After that, clock on ‘Processes’ Tab above. If you are running on a Windows 7 PC click on the button ‘Show Processes From All Users’ below. Then Look for one of these two .sys processes – tammgR119.sys/tammgF119.sys, mark them with the mouse and press on the down right button of the task manager, called ‘End Task’

      Step 2: After they are ‘dead’, reveal the hidden files from your PC by:

      1) Clicking on Start button and then on Control Panel
      2) Clicking on Personalization
      3) Pressing Windows button + E button together to open Computer Window
      4) Clicking on the View Tab
      5) Unticking ‘Hidden Items’ tick box in order to see hidden files
      6) Unchecking ‘Hide Protected System Files’ in Folder Options
      7) After which clicking on the ‘OK’ button

      Step 3: Cleaning Registry Entries:

      In order to delete modified registry settings please:
      1)Press Windows button+R in order to bring up the Run prompt
      2)Type in it regedit then click on OK
      3)While you are in the Registry Editor, press Ctrl+F in order to open the search prompt.
      4)After that search for the current registry files:
      5)Look for tammg files (tammgR119.sys or tammgF119.sys) or anything similar to this.
      6)Look for the current registry or directory filenames and delete them:

      Note that those files and registries were all infected or corrupted and only some of them could be removed so don`t be scared if you are not able to delete all of them. Also bear in mind that these files are from a different system so there might be some variables, like Different OS, for example.

      My advice is to follow the first method because of the uniqueness of your situation.
