McAfee Update when other applications are running

Often, shortly after starting my XP SP3 PC, I run anapplication such as clean manager which can take up to 10 minutes. Sometimes, right in the middle, McAfee AntiVirus Plus decides to start its update and installation routine which slows both applications down. I don't see any option that would allow McAfee to search for, download and install updates only when there is no activity on the PC – is there one?

Thanks in advance for any tips and a Merry Xmas
