    Really odd websites being blocked by parental controls

      I hope this is the right forum for this, it seems as if questions about Parental Controls get put in the board relating to the version of McAfee software they are deployed in... this relates to Security Centre 9.2.130

      My children have limited user access to a PC and the parental controls for this account are set as "Child".

      I'm surprised by some of the websites which are being blocked. Already I've had to manually Allow permission to www.bbc.co.uk, specifically because its site dedicated to 2-5 year olds (www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/) was blocked.

      Similarly, the children's section of our network TV channel (www.itv.co.uk/citv) is also blocked.

      Is there any rhyme or reason why these child-focussed sites are blocked?

      While I do not allow my children to use the PC without a degree of supervision, bizarre decisions on content filtering such as this do undermine my confidence in the service.
