    There is no supported way to uninstall it.  However, apparently it can be done (although I don't have an Acer so I can't confirm that).  See the post: Acer Aspire easyStore h340 and McAfee removal help for details.

    As for installing your the A/V app you want to install, it's also unsupported and not recommended.  You should use an A/V that is designed for WHS as the OS doesn't handle files the way other OSes do and could give false positives.  F-Secure and avast! both make WHS-specific versions.
