Yes, and no. Generally if your system is running too slow, try clearing out your temporary files - in internet explorer, that's under tools > internet options > browser settings > delete > (click on temporary internet files)
Run disk cleanup and defrag your hard drive. (under my computer, right click on C:, properties, disk cleanup, then tools tab, defragment. Go into installed programs, remove programs you don't use- uninstall them. If cleaning up the space on your drive doesn't help, you can lower scanning sensitivity in McAfee to be a little less aggressive. Hardware wise, if you are running low on memory, you can consult your system manufacturer or documentation for your motherboard to see about purchasing and adding more memory to your system- which has the added benefit of increasing all-around performance

Bought macfee dont know how to activate my licence key for my acer laptop

Possibly too late if it already has issues. Try downloading iobit, run the malware removal programme and then install your chosen anti virus programme. Bear in mind, without help you will never be able to remove Macafee. It is worse than a virus. Iobit works as well and is free!

It takes a long time to load internet pages and often hangs. My internet connection speed is reasonable it at 128kbps.

I would do 2 things. First scan for viruses. You can download Malwarebytes free HERE. Install it and let it update then run a full scan. Second download Ccleaner HERE . Install and run the cleaner which will remove junk files and temp files including your temp. internet cache and cookies amoung other unwanted junk that slows down your computer. This should speed up your connection unless you have a hardware problem which would be difficult to diagnose online. Good Luck!
