It could if you have an older computer. (more then a few years old)

It takes A LOT of resources like Ram and Processor speed. Mojang the makers of minecraft don't really have a computer spec to go by so the best way to find out is to search online for someone that has a similar computer as your's and see if there's runs ok or not.

Having Minecraft on your computer is unlikely to slow it downTrying to run Minecraft andseveralother things at once might though

If your computer has little RAm or an older OS or version of Java, Minecraft itself might run slowlyThis can be avoided by changing the video settings to reduce performance
