Just do like this.
string filename = "YourFileName.extension";
Response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition","attachment; filename="+ filename  +"");
Here the FileName is YourFileName.extension.

Thanks...

Hi,
Try this

Response.ClearContent();
        Response.ClearHeaders();
        Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment;filename=" + filename);
        Response.WriteFile(Server.MapPath(@"" + "~/Utils/ApplicantFiles/" + lblID.Text + "/" + strFilename));
        Response.Flush();
        Response.Clear();
        
        Response.Close();

I guess you forgot to define and declare the variable filename.
