ps -aux output: CROND running repeatedly

When I type ps -aux CROND seems to be running a whole bunch of times. The following is repeated pretty much every day that my pc has been running. Should I kill these? Why is the same thing running every day and not terminating?

root 30961 0.0 0.0 1444 4 ? S Mar08 0:00 CROND
root 30962 0.0 0.0 2048 4 ? S Mar08 0:00 /bin/bash /usr/bin/run-parts /etc/cron.daily
root 31320 0.0 0.0 2040 4 ? S Mar08 0:00 /bin/sh /etc/cron.daily/rpm

Anyone? I have noticed my PC slowing down recently. Are these programs failing?
