Yep, if you're downloading anything P2P you need to virus scan it before touching anything. Generally though, you should be able to try to avoid malware by looking in the comments on popular torrents.

Anyone using torrents should also be running this software:
http://phoenixlabs.org/pg2/

Definitely makes things a LOT safer, and can actually speed up your downloads by reducing the amount of "wasted" downloaded material (the MPAA and RIAA and such organizations actually send you bad data, so it wastes your download time)
