    How it works:

    Well first I exploited the glitch in Windows 95/98 to use con/con in run (start con/con for cmd prompt) to force a BSOD. I put this into a .bat file and placed it into the startup folder. Bingo, a BSOD on startup. Now for the red part. In the windows folder there is a file called SYSTEM.INI. I forgot the code (will look it up in a bit) but if you put something into this file the BSOD will turn whatever color you like.

    This color changing for BSOD works on all versions of windows (im not sure about windows 8 and above but you can try that, hello friendly csrss.exe)

    Green Screen Of Death
    Blue Screen w/ Red Text





    Above are some extra types of BSOD's i created! Also for more BSOD fun (more like helping me out) visit: https://gbatemp.net/threads/question-is-there-an-equivelent-of-csrss-exe-in-windows-95.453664/

    In windows 95/98 there was a bug that alowed you to get a BSOD.
    In run type "con/con"
    In cmd type "start con/con"
    In internet explorer go to the address bar and type "C:\con/con"

    BSOD everytime.
    I made a batch file to run "start con/con" and put it in startup :)
    (make sure to use these cmds without quotation marks)

    i went into system.ini and made the bsod background red.

    notice the crappy scandisk message with the green lines :) dont use win95 with dosbox and give it a bsod. then you get green lines and scandisk every time you boot up. I dont think i have used the shutdown button once on that installation... bsod everytime :P

    btw if anybody wants a simple batch "virus" that injects a bsod into startup (compatible with windows 95/98) PM me and ill send you a link

    Ah WIndows 95, the first OS I ever experienced as a child. I honestly do not remember it at all but atlas it is probably for the better.

    this is quite wrong for windows 95. He is asking as there was a command prompt open.
    This method doesnt work on XP and below. i already explained the cmd i used.

    start con/con
    (from run prompt) con/con
    (from IE) C:\con/con

    anyway i will update the OP with info on how i:

    A: Got a BSOD on startup
    B: Made it red

    I already explained A but i will put it in OP now.

    I think green would've been better. Yeah sure it might make your think something positive happened at first glance until you read the text but it won't make you scared when you see it pop up.

    Either way, it's amusing that BSODs can be induced at will whether it's through con/con on 9x or the registry edit on newer Windows.
