Count me among the people very NOT HAPPY about the fact that I am now forced to use Windows accounts to use Parental Controls. I'm going to have to find another parental control program, unfortunately.
I had to reinstall Windows, and was using McAfee accounts before, but now I can't since it's a clean install.
Several of my kids' programs WON'T WORK on a limited account, so I HAVE to make them administrators, which makes McAfee parental controls a useless program for me.
I really wish McAfee would give it's customers the choice which to use - some of us can make informed choices, believe it or not! Bad move.
I understand WHY it was done, however, the fact remains that it makes the Parental Controls completely useless.
There are some programs that WILL NOT RUN on limited windows accounts. So I have no choice but to give my kids administrator accounts in order to be able to play their games.
There should be a back door way to be able to use McAfee accounts for people who prefer them.
I guess there's no way to download an older version of the software so I can set it up with McAfee accounts and then upgrade? Right now, I'm shopping around and will have to pay ANOTHER annual fee for a parental controls program that will work.
