I Can't seem to find any free Windows 7 ISOs around the web that don't look sketchy, I'm wanting to test some potentially unwanted programs and the effects on a computer infected with certain types of malware.

It seems you can download a Windows 7 ISO direct from Microsft ( https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows7 ), though it sounds like the download page only accepts retail license keys, not OEM keys.

These are the keys you can use. Windows 10 is handled differently see the extra link to that.

 

From an authorized retailer. The product key should be on a label or card inside the box that Windows came in.

A new PC running Windows. The product key will be pre–installed on your PC, included with the packaging the PC came in, or included on the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) attached to the PC.

A digital copy from a Microsoft website. The product key will be in the confirmation email you received after buying it. Or it may be distributed as a digital license if you bought Windows 10, in which case you won't receive a product key.

Free upgrade to Windows 10. If you upgraded to Windows 10 for free from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, you'll have a digital license instead of a product key. For more info about digital licenses in Windows 10, see Activation in Windows 10.

You can use a 3rd party tool to download Windows. See the following article: http://www.howtogeek.com/186775/how-to-download-windows-7-8-and-8.1-installation-media-legally/
