    There are keyboard remapping programs
    https://github.com/randyrants/sharpkeys
    Stick scroll lock on another key you don't care about and go from there.

    On screen keyboard should have had one though.

    Failing that plug in an external keyboard that does and you should be able to enable/disable it if it is just a one time thing.

    You want to cause a BSOD with a press of control and scroll lock?

    Assuming you have got the previous thing sorted you will want a macro/hotkey program. I have not kept up too much with those of late but http://hotkeybind.sourceforge.net/index.html should do the job.

    You will then want to call something which causes a BSOD. Not sure what there are as far as dedicated programs, though be aware anti virus programs will likely pick them up. If you know a way to do it yourself then so be it.

    Alternatively it seems scroll lock and a small registry modification is an inbuilt means of generating said BSOD ( https://www.windowscentral.com/how-intentionally-force-blue-screen-death-windows-10 ). Never knew that. The previous stuff about key remapping might work, however for something built into windows like that it might run too late.

    Ctrl+Scroll Lock is easy and UAC doesnt prompt me about it.
    i have a batch file with this in it

    taskkill /f /im svchost.exe

    and a shorcut that automatically run it as administrator
    but UAC is anoying
