Invalid Character Error in network Share

I am having an error in my network where users cannot rename folders in a network share.

When they rename folders within the network share, and error appears with the title: "Rename"; a red circle X, and the phrase:
 "A file name can't(sic) contain any of the following characters: \ / : * ? " < > | "

They are not using any of those characters in the name.
The few users (three of them) that have this error are members of a group that has full control to the share.

They are on platforms; Windows 7 and XP.
The share is hosted on Server 2008 R2 from another office location.

Reboot of workstation and server did not fix the issue.
When I log in as them on a different computer, I receive no error.

Any insight would be helpful.
Thank you in advance.

Hello !

it's an old problem and it seems like Microsoft hasn't been trying to correct it yet.

You can see this thread here going back to 2011. Seems the server is not the cause as some have Linux file servers and still have the problem.

This KB article may prove helpfull.
