Such strings look like some uninitialized memory. Note also the
"cccccccc"'s on the stack, which are probably the same: uninitialized

The ERROR_INVALID_NAME is the error code set by the CreateFileW choking
on the \ffcc\ffcc... file name. It is written to an error log:

In other words, most of this log is the program reacting on the
CreateFile error. Perhaps including the crash.
