I can change the McAfee Privacy Service to adult but at reboot the setting goes to child. I am only running one account which is setup as the administrator. I get constant dialog boxes from Privacy Service asking questions regarding allowing cookies and allowing applications to access the internet. I am on the verge of reloading Windows XP and all of my applications.

Have you tried re-installing it? I have it too and I am the only person Admin in this computer and have no problems. Maybe you should set the adult one as Primary Account by going to McAfee Privacy Service-->Manage Users-->And changing details there?

PS: If you make it the Start-Up Account it doesn't asks for passwords.
