Does this happen on a supported release, which is 6.10 at the moment? Try yum update to update your system to 6.10.

Prior to that, you are advised to read the release notes of CentOS 6.6 through 6.10 for any known issues:


Are you perhaps running some sort of a control panel application that has its own scheduling of tasks?

What do you mean by "starts"? IPTABLES doesn't really run: it configures the kernel to do the appropriate management of packets. There isn't a persistent user process involved.
