string s = @"a string
with linebreak";
s = s.Replace(Environment.NewLine, "");

I do not think that Regex will do any good here. a simple
String.Replace is enough.
You can look for Environment.NewLine.

A tricky situation happens though if the file was originated in a
system with a different NewLine sequence, you will replace nothing but
the text still do not look like you intented.

IMHO you should look for char# 13 and 10 and remove them.

that should be characters \r and \n

I have worked with ebcdic before and it was one of my pet hates, for
example in c 0x20 is a space instead of simply using ' '. Made porting
