This is with the beta. And that's the thing, it's not clear what apps need any updates. The auto-start option is OFF. I close the program, then later the icon appears again in the taskbar saying there are updates, I open ODM, and it shows me the list of apps that are installed and not installed (I'm only using like 3 of them right now), and that's it. Nothing shows an update, I don't understand. Am I supposed to see some sort of badge? It just opens ODM. So I close it... and later on the taskbar icon appears again, rinse and repeat.

So disabling automatic updates AND un-checking auto-start prevents it from running on its own. So that's good, I guess. Those are two clashing options that should be addressed. Disabling auto-start should prevent the app from starting on its own, period.  You should still be able to enable automatic updates, and that check should just happen when the app is running, even if its only when you manually start the program. That is my opinion anyways.
