The type or namespace name 'Linq' does not exist in the namespace 'System' (are you missing an assembly reference?)

My corporate network connection broke and I had my VS project crashed. On compiling, it gives me the following two errors:


The referenced component 'System.Web.ApplicationServices' could not be found.       

The type or namespace name 'Linq' does not exist in the namespace 'System' (are you missing an assembly reference?)

To resolve the first error, I downloaded the System.Web.ApplicationServices.dll from a web site, copied it to the bin folder and tried to add reference to my project, but it still gives me the same error, any hint/clue please?

I closed and reoped the VS and the first error seems to have disappeared. However, the second one:

The type or namespace name 'Linq' does not exist in the namespace 'System' (are you missing an assembly reference?)

is still there. How to get this one resolved, any clues?

check if you have referenced the required assemblies, system.core, system.xml.linq, system.data, etc. and your target framework is 3.5.
