Query string errors

I have the following query strings for the sf1_2010.xml, sf1_2000.xml, and sf1_1990.xml respectively.

API key not valid

I've had an API key for weeks and just got back to my project after doing some other work. I get this error when I make a query that used to work:

 

"A valid key must be included with each data API request.

You included a key with this request, however, it is not valid.

Please check your key and try again.'

 

Any thoughts?
