do you mean windows asking you to verify you are the account holder before letting you make csv file? type exactly what you see on the screen...there might be CAPITAL LETTERS WITH NUMBERS IN BETWEEN OR small letters...some bold..type what you SEE.

I will try again to update my position.

Firstly, this quest is for a friend of mine who I have converted to Gmail and he wants to import his contacts from his Hotmail a/c.

To learn how to help him, I have followed your instructions, and done a Google and I will list my progress.

1-i have opened a hotmail a/c for myself.
2-i have inserted my daughters address in my HM contacts.
3-i have done the options/more options/export contacts/type jumbled letters/I am then asked to open/save.
