Mcafee purposely slows?

So my computer is a year old. It was purchased as a decent gaming computer. Dedicated graphics card, upgraded ram and solid state drive to make it a little better. Now at a year old I haven't renewed Mcafee antivirus, have 30 days left. But all of the sudden it seems frame rates on even simple games that hardly use the power the graphics card is capable of is now crashing pretty low, pretty easily. I am pretty avid on keeping all my software and drivers up to date, checking a few times a week .

So back story explained, I am curious it seems too conspicuous that as soon as the antivirus subscription is ending, that my computer slows down. Does Mcafee slow down computers if you don't pay?
