Filestream Reference

With this snipplet of code.  What do i need to reference in C# to get this to work? Or what am i doing wrong?
i get the following errors:
1.  System.EventArgs' does not contain a definition for 'Message'
2.  A local variable named 'e' cannot be declared in this scope because it would give a different meaning to 'e', which is already used in a 'parent or current' scope to denote something else
3. Cannot create an instance of the abstract class or interface 'System.IO.Stream'

I have the following already referenced:

using System;
using System.Collections;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.SessionState;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
using System.IO;

int fileid = Convert.ToInt32(DataGrid1.SelectedItem.Cells[1].Text); ws = new;

byte[] test = ws.DecryptStoredFile(pm.sessionKey,fileid);

string FileName = Path.GetTempFileName();
FileStream File_Stream = new FileStream(FileName, FileMode.Append, FileAccess.Write);
StreamWriter FileWriter = new Stream(File_Stream);
      FileWriter.BaseStream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.End);
catch(Exception e)

Sorry, i wasnt very clear.

error number 1 comes from this snipplet of code:  Response.Write(e.Message.ToString());

error number 2 comes from this snipplet: catch(Exception e)

error number 3 comes from this snipplet: StreamWriter FileWriter = new Stream(File_Stream);   // new is underlined  

Error number 3 is my main concern.

If your code is part of an event handler then e.Message is causing a conflict with "EventArgs e" in the event arguments. Try changing to:

     catch (Exception ex)

Error 3 comes from you trying to create a new Stream (which is an abstract class).


    StreamWriter FileWriter = new StreamWriter(File_Stream);
