Trados error message (50005) that is not related to my situation and prevents me from working

For a few days, following error message has prevented me from using my different memories:

"(50005) This tranlation memory has passed its "Usable Until" expiry date. Please..."

- I have checked this expiry date according to SDL "Knowledge database" : there is none anyway, the field is empty
- my license (SDL Trados 2007 - Freelance, version 8.0) is valid.
- I have not changed anything to Trados or SDL recently.
The SDL website does not provide further information, as far as I could see.
Has any of you encountered this situation and how have you dealt with it?
Thank you in advance for your help

'50005 This translation memory has passed its "Usable Until" expiry date.

The translation memory you want to open has passed its Usable Until date.

Open the translation memory in exclusive mode, and change the Usable Until date in the General tab
of the Setup dialog box (File menu)'

The above was picked up here:

It's a guide for Trados 2006, which is not that far from 2007, so perhaps this would word for you too.

Good luck.
