I need help unreferencing a reference in an ASP.NET 2.0 web project.

I have a web project that had a reference to ado.  Someone added a reference to ado.net to the project and we got the compilation error:

The type 'ADODB.Connection' exists in both 'c:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Temporary ASP.NET Files\webapp\8a30a549\4af9b613\assembly\dl3\04275478\0007ea7b_d409c701\Interop.ADODB.DLL' and 'c:\WINDOWS\assembly\GAC\ADODB\7.0.3300.0__b03f5f7f11d50a3a\adodb.dll'

This is to be expected since both have an ADODB.Connection object.

Now my problem is that i cannot unreference ado.net.  I thought i could do this in the web.config file but all my references are being readded there when i recompile.  Here is a snippet from my web.config.

<compilation defaultLanguage="c#" debug="true" strict="true">
      <assemblies>
            <add assembly="System.Web, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B03F5F7F11D50A3A"/>

            <add assembly="mscomctl, Version=10.0.4504.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35"/>
            <add assembly="MSDATASRC, Version=7.0.3300.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B03F5F7F11D50A3A"/>

            <add assembly="ADODB, Version=7.0.3300.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B03F5F7F11D50A3A"/>
      </assemblies>
</compilation>

I dont know which one is ado.net but i'm guessing that
<add assembly="ADODB, Version=7.0.3300.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B03F5F7F11D50A3A"/>
represents old ado.  When i delete that one, the line is always re-added when recompile.

I my question is: How to i unreference ado.net so my code works again (it won't even compile now)?

You right click on the web project and select "property pages".  You then see a list of reference and have the option to add or remove them.
