McAfee came already installed

I recently bought an Acer laptop (I know it's not a pc, but I don't believe it's that relevant), and It came with McAfee LiveSafe pre-installed because of some sort of partnership between them, along with other Acer software. Now, i've never been much of a fan of "Antivirus" software because they have always caused my PCs to slow down. I thought i'd make an exception since it was already there, so I was actually thinking of buying a lifetime subscription because there was an insane discount on McAfee for new Acer laptops. As expected, McAfee started messing up with my files on the first week. It already botched up the wifi driver, messing with the ports, and then kept deleting the exe file of a game I installed on steam. I thought it was because I haven't updated the laptop since I bought it, which might or might not have fixed the wifi problem. I'm still reluctant on keeping it, but I bought this laptop for college, which means I'm going to be going on a lot of websites and downloading a lot of files.
