Is ESET Internet Security Draining my Laptops Battery?


Recommended Posts

Hi y'all,

Yesterday I got a Legion 5 Laptop and as I was setting it up for the first time I noticed that the battery drains rather fast. At this point I have ESET Internet security on my laptop and I am just using google chrome. I lose about 1-2% each minute or so. I contacted Lenovo and Microcenter support and they both agree that this is a hardware issue and I should just exchange the laptop. No big deal to me as I bought the laptop yesterday. However, I was just wondering in a moment of curiosity if my internet security could be causing this. Could it? 

Here is the exact link of the laptop I bought.

Is ESET generating high CPU utilization during a long period that it would cause increase of battery consumption?

You can temporarily uninstall ESET and leave Windows Defender protect your system for some time to find out if it actually makes a difference.

No the cpu hasn’t ever had high utilization! And Eset hasn’t taken more than 2% of the cpu and that was during install
