    My recommendation: Let your Mum know that Limewire (one word by the way) is one of the main places that Malware (Viruses; Trojans; Spyware; Rootkits etc) come from.
    And it may be best to keep "Parental Controls" as they are ;)

    I feel that if you are using Limewire (you know the worst P2P program of them all)
    And you are also wanting to play some online game
    Then why is Parental Controls even installed?

    I thought it was installed to stop kids doing this (and obviously viewing in appropriate material)

    This one is difficult for me
    You could just be some kid trying to get around your Moms restrictions
    There are settings in Parental Control, but it may just be easier to uninstall/remove it and then start again
