McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.5.0i 'McAfee McShield' automatically restarts

When I perform a net stop command or using services.msc stop the service 'McAfee McShield' the service basically restarts automatically.
The registry key is set to value of 0
The check marks on the 'Enable Access Protection' and 'Prevent McAfee services from being stopped'  are off.

In my case I am looking to stop the services during backup operation. I use Computer Associates Brightstor. When the AV is running I loose significaint throughput.

I realize that their is an accepted soluiton, however, I do not believe that the problem was resolved with the solution accepted based on my results.

Mystery solved - others will find this information resourceful.

uncheck in General tab of On-Access Scan Properties 'Enalbe on-access scanning at system startup'

For the net stop to function use the following:
NET STOP "McAfee Alert Manager"
NET STOP "McAfee Framework Service"
NET STOP "McAfee McShield"
NET STOP "McAfee Task Manager"

For the net start to function use the following:
NET START "McAfee Alert Manager"
NET START "McAfee Framework Service"
NET START "McAfee Task Manager"
NET START "McAfee McShield"
NET CONTINUE "McAfee McShield"

When the service is stopped the state is paused, which is why the continue command is required.
