That's not true: it's only some Windows applications, notably the 
Explorer, prevent you from creating such directories and files.  But the 
Windows filesystem itself is perfectly happy with names like .emacs.d.

So the problem lies elsewhere.  Can you post the output of the command 
"dir c:\" typed from a DOS box?
