Installing antivirus makes a machine (a little bit) slower, since it uses resources. Most people accept that, because it prevents more serious problems.

If the machine was very slow already without antivirus it's a potential warranty issue. Reset it back to factory conditions and if no luck, back to the shop to have it fixed.

It depends on your antivirus program, there are number of exclusions you can make to make it run faster. Also check for programs your startup is using so you can minimize the system resource usage
