C:\con\con is a "magic" filename in Win. What it's supposed to be used for, I
don't know, but you're certainly not supposed to read randomly from it,
expecting image data. The result is an instant bluescreen, which, if you try
to continue from it, detabilizes the entire system to the point where it
bluescreens again when you move the mouse.
