    closed  solution
    reopened solution
    ran build
    changed back to target .net 4
    closed solution
    reopened solution
    removed and re-added reference to ajax toolkit dll
    ran build
    error stopped being thrown.

    I applied the same process, below given

    > again Change the .net target framework back from 3.5 to 4.0 
    > close the solution
    > reopen the solution
    > removed the reference of AjaxControlToolkit.dll
    > again add the reference of AjaxControlToolkit.dll(Latest for 4.0 version i.e. for VS2010)
    > build your app
    > error stopped being thrown.
