Default narrowing conversion - please help

Hi I posted a question last week about saving html to a document automatically to a server, well i think i found the answer below

Dim renderedOutput = New System.Text.StringBuilder

Dim strwriter = New StringWriter(renderedOutput)

Dim tWriter = New HtmlTextWriter(strWriter)


Dim OUTPUT_FILENAME = tempID & ".doc"

Dim filename = Server.MapPath("files") & "\" & OUTPUT_FILENAME

Dim outputStream = New FileStream(filename, FileMode.Create)

Dim sWriter = New StreamWriter(outputStream)



the problem is when i compile this code i get this error:

c:\inetpub\wwwroot\CustomerTrip\worddoc2.aspx.vb(7 88): Overload resolution failed because no accessible 'New' can be called without a narrowing conversion:
    'Public Sub New(sb As System.Text.StringBuilder)': Argument matching parameter 'sb' narrows from 'System.Object' to 'System.Text.StringBuilder'.
    'Public Sub New(formatProvider As System.IFormatProvider)': Argument matching parameter 'formatProvider' narrows from 'System.Object' to 'System.IFormatProvider'.

I have the two lines the error refers to highlighted in pink. any help would be really appreciated!
