Default Regex.IsMatch - receive a parsing error

I receive a parsing error on this line:
If Regex.IsMatch(TextBox1.Text, "[^a-zA-Z\d;.,':-/+ ]") Then

See error below, any advise?

Here is part of the error:

parsing "[^a-zA-Z\d;.,':-/+ ]" - [x-y] range in reverse order. Parameter name: [^a-zA-Z\d;.,':-/+ ]
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.ArgumentException: parsing "[^a-zA-Z\d;.,':-/+ ]" - [x-y] range in reverse order. Parameter name: [^a-zA-Z\d;.,':-/+ ]

If you need to include '-' in your searh pattern include it as the first char

[^-a-zA-Z\d;.,':/+ ]

This should work

Else it considers :-/ as a range
