    Talking battery not lasting after software install

    I have a macbook pro "13" and i just install kaspersky 2010 for mac and forever save on my mac, now befor i install these programes my battery would last about 10 hours, just enough battery for uni classes. But now the battery only last about 5 to 6 hours. Now kno that is not right is there anything i could do to fix this or is this just something that happens to the battery after installing programes.

    Uninstall Kaspersky. Make sure you use it's uninstaller - don't go just dragging it to the trash. Then, if you must have an a/v installed due to your schools rules, give ClamXav a try.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Short answer no. Installing programs does not automatically reduce battery life. Using programs is what drains batteries.

    Kaspersky is probably doing a lot of stuff in the background which will drain battery life. Follow bobtomay's advice if you really need an antivirus on your Mac.
