Task manager keeps loading processes. Is this a virus?

I already scanned the computer for a virus/trojan and it should be updated. However, when I load my computer, it is very slow. I open the task manager, and it has a bunch of processes. Some I'm sure I don't need but I'm not quite familiar with them yet. Could this be the act of a virus and/or Trojan? I have Microsoft Security Essentials for a antivirus program. The more these ******** do this, the more they will find themselves in trouble. Even after I end a process, it comes right back in the window. This is Windows XP Service Pack 3. I can reinstall Windows, but I'd hate to do that. It's also on a laptop. My firewall is working (that I know of).
