Admin rights

Can you help with a problem I am having with Vista permission?
I quite like this idea of UAC. I mean I wouldn't want any programs installing I havent asked.
But one issue I do have is with the free McAfee security (or Norton I forget which) When it asks if I want to download updates I say yes. Then it starts to install them. It does most of them, but there is one or two things it cant update and says "We were unable to install updates as you do not have admin permission" But I have checked in my user accounts and both users, myself and the girlfriend, both do have admin accounts and not standard accounts.
Do you know about this problem or how I can fix it without switching off UAC?
