Mcshield.exe & winlogon.exe running excessively

Has anyone else started noticing mcshield.exe and winlogon.exe running excessively? Noticed the drive light was on a lot when the system was idle and checked Task Manager. Both mcshield and winlogon would cycle between zero activity for winlogon and mcshield or winlogon would be at 15% - 20% and mcshield would be at 50% - 70%. Both phases lasted for a few seconds.

 

Any clues? Is the problem of a couple years ago back again?
