As the message says, you are not allowed to use certain characters in the name of the saved file !
Remove the culprit character(s) !

E.g.
The Save window often shows *.(file extension), e.g. *.txt , *.jpg
* (the asterisk character - a.k.a. "star" - the uppercase of 8 on your keyboard) can't be in the name of the saved file.

Mike19, as stated, certain characters MAY NOT be used in a filename as they confuse your machine later when it tries to access them. Rename your file to exclude any of the reserved characters. Often one of them (especially :, ?, or !) appear in a video title on the web.
