Parental controls only available from childs account - why?

I have had parental controls set on McAfee for a while, but the M icon won't work from my user accounct. So each time I want to change anything, I have to access the M icon by logging onto my sons account, unblock various bits, and then I can change things.

It possibly isn't a McAfee problem, but a computer operator one! but i wondered if anyone can help so I can access this from my own account please?

I don't know when a Parental Controls expert will spot this thread so in the meanwhile I recommend that you open a case with Technical Support a.s.a.p. :

It's free by phone or online chat.
