Windows 7: Mirc - why is it telling me my usual channel is 'illegal'?

Mirc - why is it telling me my usual channel is 'illegal'?

I've used MIRC for years. Just now with a new PC I've updated to Win 7. Tried going to chat to my usual channels but I keep being blocked by a message saying it's 'illegal'? Is this to do with Win 7 settings or Mirc. Any comments or ideas please?

My understanding MIRC is free trial period and then you must buy it.
