Heres some code to do a popup save as dialog:
Response.ContentType = "application/octet-stream";
Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment; filename=" + myFileName);        // myFileName is the variable that holds the name of your text file etc

FileStream sourceFile = new FileStream(myFileName, FileMode.Open);
long FileSize;
FileSize = sourceFile.Length;
byte[] getContent = new byte[(int)FileSize];
sourceFile.Read(getContent, 0, (int)sourceFile.Length);
sourceFile.Close();

Response.BinaryWrite(getContent);

and here is a link to info regarding Reading/Writing data to text files: http://www.automatedqa.com/techpapers/textfiles_net.asp
