We have been experiencing high CPU with Dropbox with our security scanner alos active. We can make the problem go away by disabling the security scanner. After installing 52.4.58 this morning the problem seems to have gone away. Our community would like to know what fixed the problem and without changelogs or release notes it makes it difficult to explain what fixed the issue.
My MacBook Pro auto-updated to 52.4.58 (on High Sierra 10.13.5). This version is forcing discrete graphics on my system (verified via gfxCardStatus). Showing two dependencies:
Dropbox, PID: 10288
Dropbox Web Helper, PID: 10387
I need Dropbox to be using the integrated GPU. Can this be fixed, please?
This build is constantly crashing on macOS 10.11.6
The previous version (50.4.71) works fine, but it autoupdates and starts crashing again.
How to turn off autoupdates?

Could you describe if you are doing something particular with Dropbox when it crashes? Does it crash immediately on starting, or does it crash at a random time? Thanks!
