    I have almost all my apps set to check for updates automatically. Most of them will most likely not update for a while. Does having all my apps set to update automatically slow down the computer. Seems like them checking every time will put a dent in my cpu usage.

    They normally only check as soon as they are opened. So they will check once when you launch them and then not again until you launch them again.

    I have mine set the same, and I never notice a slowdown.
