You don't say anything about your environment, version/distro of Linux, or what those processes ARE, so how can anyone here help you?

Short answer: They're running because they need to be. Longer answer: you MIGHT have a problem, but might not, but we have no way of knowing, since you don't provide any details.

I agree with TBOne. Provide more info.

Also, run this commande in a console

Code:
pstree
And let us know about these processes's the parent and grandparent. People here might find it useful to help you.
