Not necessarily. When you go to the download site for putty and click on 
the .exe (<http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/latest/x86/putty.exe>), 
Windows will ask you whether you want to download the program or run it. Tell 
Windows to run it. It may give you the odd warning but eventually it should 
start up a putty window. (It's possible even this can be locked down tight on 
a Windows box - but usually it isn't blocked).
