    i m using win8 RP.with win7 ultimate i was getting the power backup of 4hrs on the notebook.however now it is reduced to 1.5hrs.recently i have downloaded the bit defender2013 and i m not sure whether it happens due to win8RP or bit defender.
    if there is any way to solve this?

    I would start with background usage of CPU to isolate the cause. In W7 --> All programs --> Admin. tools --> computer management --> system tools --> Performance --> monitoring tools --> performance --> performance monitoring

    See also event viewer.

    I would suspect settings on Bit defender are allowing updating and scanning to frequently.. I am not running this anti virus so I can't help you with the settings but that is where I would look first.
