svchost errors, slow startup - HJT log

My computer suddenly takes a long time to boot up. After startup I receive the error message “SVCHOST.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You will need to restart the program.”

I followed the directions and ran AdAware, CWShredder, SpyBot S&D, AVG, Trend Housecall, TDS-3. Nothing serious was found. The only critical update I need is XP SP2.

I don’t want to install SP2 until I know my system is clean though. Could someone look at my HijackThis log below and let me know what they think?

Thanks so much!

I don't like executables that run from temp files. Any idea what this is?

mcinfo.exe first appeared just after I uninstalled McAfee Virus Scan Suite. I have no idea what it does.
