Just to add :)

According to my comment in another question, i'd change the code as below.
Benefits:
 - just one use of IO, this is much faster
 - also, you may close connection earlier, not waiting for time-consuming IO operations

The first one might be very important if you have hundreds of lines. Also, your UI will respond faster, I believe.
string MyConString = "SERVER=localhost;" +
                "DATABASE=registration;" +
                "UID=root;" +
                "PASSWORD='';";
            MySqlConnection connection = new MySqlConnection(MyConString);
            MySqlCommand command = connection.CreateCommand();
            MySqlDataReader Reader;
            command.CommandText = "select * from teera";
            connection.Open();
            Reader = command.ExecuteReader();
            StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
            while (Reader.Read())
            {
                string thisrow = "";
                for (int i = 0; i < Reader.FieldCount; i++)
                    thisrow += Reader.GetValue(i).ToString() + ",";
                listBox1.Items.Add(thisrow);
                //System.IO.File.AppendAllText(@"C:\file.txt", "thisrow");
                sb.Append(s + Environment.NewLine);
            }
            connection.Close();
            System.IO.File.WriteAllText(@"C:\path\to\file.txt", sb.ToString());
