ASP.NET (C#) Question

"The name 'HTML' does not exist in the current context" in MVC 3 Views

I´m starting to use "MVC 3" but I´m facing some little problems. In my Views, when I code something like this:

@if(Request.IsAuthenticated) {
<text>Welcome <b>@Context.User.Identity.Name</b>!
[ @Html.ActionLink("Log Off", "LogOff", "Account") ]</text>
}
else {
@:[ @Html.ActionLink("Log On", "LogOn", "Account") ]
}


The objects like @Request and @Html is indicating an error:
The name 'HTML' does not exist in the current context
.

The same occurs with @Context, @ViewBag, @Layout, @Url and others.

See:

But the code is correctly compiled with no errors. The problem is that I cannot use the Intellisense with theses objects in the Views. Is it normal? (I don´t think so). What could be happening?

I have reinstalled the MVC 3 framework but the same still occurs.

Note: this is a new project from scratch, not a MVC 2 migration. This occurs both with Razor engine and ASPX.

This is the Web.Config in the Views folder:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<!--
Enabling request validation in view pages would cause validation to occur
after the input has already been processed by the controller. By default
MVC performs request validation before a controller processes the input.
To change this behavior apply the ValidateInputAttribute to a
controller or action.

Answer

I have solved this issue with the old, good, wise Microsoft default solution: reinstall all the things again.

Uninstall and Reinstall the Visual Studio 2010 and MVC 3 Framework.
