Set your Maximum Archive Depth to 0.

This doesn't affect virus scanning, but does affect how deep MS will upack 
an archive in order to check filename, filetype and filesize rules.

This unfortunately also disables filename checking inside zipfiles, but 
quite frankly I don't see the value unless your network is a "severe 
lockdown" network where no executables are allowed to be brought in at all.
