Jos wants magic, we got MAGIC!!!!

#Include <File.au3>
$aArray = ""
$File = "C:\Somefile.txt"
$TmpFile = StringReplace($File,"C:",@TempDir)
_FileReadToArray($File, $aArray)
For $I = 1 To Ubound($aArray)-1
   $aArray[$I] = StringReplace($aArray[$I], "Some Text", "Some other Text")
   FileWriteLine($TmpFile, $aArray[$I])
Next
FileMove($TmpFile, $File, 1)

Edit: I shoud have added that to remove the text replace "Some other Text" with a blank string in The StringReplace function
