data loader Load Wizard error

I just got a new PC and have loaded the Data Loader on it.  I have successfully logged in and am trying to export a file but get the following error:
!LoadWisard.errorFileCreate!extract.csv
I have created a folder for the files to export to but cannot get rid of this error?

This is because the folder where the extract is being stored is not accessible, is corrupt or has not been selected.

To fix this; restart the Extract process, choose the object, and select a different folder\location to store the csv file.

Failed regardless of which folder I select

The answer provided by MagulanDuraipandian helped me. I selected a specific folder and gave the extract file a new name (not the one prepopulated by data loader) and it worked on the next try.

It turns out that the file name cannot have the .csv extension (or perhaps any other extension). It downloaded in the file type *.* and I used Notepad to open it.
