had this same problem.you must have set a child account and said you were under 18.the family settings wont fix this.what i did was made a new account that i only use to download mature demos.cuz its not that big of a deal.silver accounts can still download everything gold can.

you have to go under the system blade> user accounts or something heres a link - http://majornelson.com/archive/2007/11/30/child-account-graduation-and-changing-live-id-association.aspx

"Promote your Xbox LIVE child account to an adult account.
If you were not yet 18 when you signed up for Xbox LIVE, your account was designated a child account. Child accounts are tied to a parent's Windows Live ID to control Family Settings, and some features of Xbox LIVE are restricted. After you turn 18, (how about "Now, if you're over 18, or when you turn 18") you can promote your child account to an adult account. If you signed up for Xbox LIVE with a child account and have since turned 18, after the update you'll see a new option at the very top of the Account Management section of the dashboard. The 'Promote Child Account" will allow you to promote an Xbox LIVE account that is a child account to an adult account. This promotion removes the Family Settings and Xbox LIVE restrictions. To promote your account, you must agree again to the Xbox LIVE Terms of Use and marketing opt-ins. If a parent's credit card was on your account, you must also enter a new one to replace it. (Yes, you can use pre-paid Debit cards as well.)"

When you turn 18, from Marketplace, go to Account Management, and at the top it should say something like "Graduate Account".

I have the same problem, you have to create a whole new account and set your birthdate so it says your over 18.
I didnt do that though because of my achievements, i dont play games for the achievements, but i didnt want all that hardwork to go to waste, so i got over it.
