Windows 7: What av settings to use prior to Brinks "repair isntall" tutorial

What av settings to use prior to Brinks "repair isntall" tutorial

Going to try another "repair install" to get Windows Media Center operational again. Just finished a repair install but Media Center/Media Player will not "enable" in Programs/Features - Add-Remove-Enable. I run Bitdefender Internet Security 2014. Should I disable this as much as possible (AV/Firewall etc) prior to running Windows & with SP1 "setup.exe" DVD or does it matter if Bitdefender (or any av/firewall) is running normally during a "repair install" ?

Brink's tutorial doesn't say anything about AV software but if it were me I'd uninstall it, do the repair then reinstall.
