For a while now, my computer (Windows XP SP 2 OS) has been very slow on startup, to the point where it takes at least 5 minutes for a program like Internet Explorer to respond after I open it. Under the Processes tab in the task manager, two processes (svchost.exe and mcpromgr.exe) were shown to be alternately consuming between 75,000 and 100,000 K in memory, with usage of CP units above 95. As soon as the usage of memory in these two processes went down, Internet Explorer would finally respond and everything would be fine. So I decided to end both processes. It felt like a mistake right away, and sure enough, after researching them on the internet, I found that mcpromgr.exe at least should not have been ended. Neither process is anywhere near as CPU-dominant now, System Idle Process is, and I generally feel like I've done nothing but make things worse. What I would like to do is restore things to the way they were and deal with the slow-startup problem more intelligently, but I'm not even sure if that's the best approach. Help will be appreciated. Thank you.

Mcpromgr.exe is part of MacAfee. Would you happen to have more than one antivirus program running at one time?
Windows has a known issue that causes the Svchost.exe to max out to 100%
