Missing Import statements since power failure

I was tooling along in my web app with no problems, and my power went out and shut everything down. So I got power back, started up the app again and now my catche's are erroring:

Catch ex As Exception

Open in new window

Says I need to Import System...

however, I didn't have it Imported in the file before and it was fine.

Did I lose a an automatic setting or something? Anyone know what's going on.

Don't tell me just to import system, I know I can do that. I want to know why it worked before and not now.

Added Note: After importing system, i'm finding a lot of other pages that require imports of other libraries that weren't required before. I feel there was something included automatically somewhere that is no longer there for some reason. I pulled a backup of my web.config prior to the power loss and that doesn't help.

I saw a website that said right click properties on the project and add references, but in VB.NET I don't find a spot to add references. And when I click to Add reference to System it says it already exists.

Any ideas?
