Replace usually returns the converted string.
Something like this:
firstName.Text = (firstName.Text).Replace(@"\", "")

Is this what you want to do?
string fileName = genericSrv.Encryption((firstName.Text).Replace(@"\", ""))

I agree with Andy's assessment:  You wouldn't want to change the encrypted string because you might not be able to restore it back. It sounds like you intended to modify the pre-encrypted string, and then to encrypt that result, which is what Andy's code demonstrates.
