Here's a little checklist for your convenience
If you have anything important on your system, you:
1. Always have up-to-date backups
2. Have up-to-date firewall and anti-virus software
3. Don't play games and download mods on it
If your that concerned simply use an un-pbo tool, virus scan the extracted folder ... if not problems = no problems.
The only time is someone being smart and making a map or something asking people to test and using and installer.exe to install the mod, then you can still virus scan it.
