Turn off firewall & anti virus

Having trouble installing / downloading for a Logitech webcam.

Logitech advised to turn off firewall & anti virus during installation.

Is this as rash and stupid as it sounds?

Download the file and then turn off frewall and anti-virus when you install it having first disonnected from internet

Not if you disconnect your PC from the internet first.

No that is normal for a trouble free install - but not always necessary.
Obviously do not be connected to the internet when you install.
You can virus scan the file first to make sure it is clean.
