PC Slow Upon Bootup - Possible AntiVirus Scan ?

I have a Windows 2008 R2 running on a DELL server. It has Trend Micro Worry Free Business Security version 17.0.2316 running on it. They have 3 PCs in their office. When the PCs bootup and are loading Windows XP Pro the CPU utilization spikes between 80-100% constantly for approximately 5 minutes. Task Manager shows Trend Micro processes using most of the utilization. I believe that the software on the server is set to scan a computer's hard drive upon startup. I need to find the proper procedure for stopping this power on scan from being executed. Whether on the server or PC.

Depending on how their trend is set it could either be running a quick scan at startup or running a check for trendupdates.  If at desktop the trend client should indicate if it is running a scan.  Is the system making it to the desktop?

Yes tmoore, the computers boot up into windows and are able to use the computer, although it takes about 2 minutes for any mouse click to register and execute. It is running a startup scan, but I need to know where and how to reconfigure the server installed app as the server pushes the updates and has a console to configure the server and the desktops.
