McShield slow restarting after pause

I am using McAfee Virusscan Enterprise v 8.7.0i and have configured it via Virusscan console to not enable on-access scanning at system startup ( I have found this speeds up system boot time).
In this configuration the McShield service is activated in a 'paused' state. Therefore I need to unpause the service once the system is booted - if I issue a service continue command by either of the following 2 commands...

sc continue mcshield
net continue mcshield

I eventually get a message that the service did not respond to the control request in a timely fashion (thus it didn't work).
However if I repeat the command it works OK.

Any ideas whats going on here??
