    It is said that firewall and antivirus should be disabled while installing new software. Is disabling real time protection in av and allowing all traffic in firewall enough ?
    Will any legit software installed be allowed by the firewall in automatic mode ? o_O

    In automatic mode, iirc, all outgoing traffic is allowed. It still stealths your ports and blocks inbound though.

    BTW, leaving your AV/FW on while installing programs should be fine.
