Windows 7: Can't Create a New User Account Because I'm Using Symbols When I'm Not

Can't Create a New User Account Because I'm Using Symbols When I'm Not

The problem I'm having with creating an account is stupid and needs to be fixed. When I am making a new User Account, It asks for the name. So I type in a name for my account and click next or whatever. But it wont let me move on because it says I'm supposily using characters like ( *,^,%,$,#,@,!,&,=,+,-,_) When I'm not. I just want my username to simply be 'Eric Alexsander' -_-

Try using a one word user name.

I highly recommend doing a complete virus scan. It's not normal behavior for Windows to mistake letters for special characters.

I've created accounts with hyphens in the user name.

It's interesting in post #1 it shows the hyphen as an invalid character.
