I want to make a new account on my computer but when I go into the control panel and type something in an error code pops up saying the name isn't valid because it contains /\[]":;|<>+=,?* when my name really doesn't. I have tried many different things and none have worked.

your recently purchased laptop should come with a windows cd and a drivers cd for that laptop. It should say the version of your windows you have.

Before even putting the cd in you must first go in to bois{ hit the delete i believe} and head into boot priorities and change Cd drive to first and Then you can pop in the cd. and press F10 and press enter.
