The processes are normal background processes of Windows, they usually only use the idle (= free) processing power of your cpu so they shouldn't slow down any other programs or games.

If you want, you should be able to reduce the amount of cpu time they use by disabling unneeded system services. Here's one tutorial about the subject: http://www.techspot.com/tweaks/winxp_services/
