How can I turn off Parental Controls?

I played around with Parental Controls yesterday, and now I can't seem to turn it off. I Googled it, and based on what I saw, you just set the option to 'Off' and it's off, but it's still turned on!!

How can I get rid of this thing?

Thanks!

As it turns out, it was a new 'user account'. I'm not sure how that got added in there, but I did some more Googling, figured out how ot delete this new user account that appeared out of nowhere, and I'm all set now.

Thanks.

This feature would be great. But is there a way to set up restrictions on my own account? I cannot afford to lose administrator privileges as I'm the only user of this computer and need to access system files frequently.
