After way to many hours with PSS we ended up rolling back to pre SP3 - any the protected service still wouldn't start.
Ultimately it was a clean boot from msconfig or the removal of Sophos AV (done together) that allowed the service to start.
Reinstalled Sophos all all is good.
Next thing is to schedule a slot where we might have to rollback and try SP3 again

Service now running without external assistance - very poor response so assume uncommon issue
