Welcome to Microsoft Software Recovery to FREE Download Windows 7 ISO http://microsoft.com/en-us/software-recovery  Download Tool

 
 
 
  • Windows 7

Thanks for being a Microsoft customer.  This site will help you accomplish the following:

  • Create a Windows 7 DVD for installation on a new hard drive
  • Create a backup Windows 7 DVD
  • Create a bootable USB drive with a copy of Windows 7
Let's get started
1
Prepare to download

In order to recover your Windows 7 product or create a backup you will need to be able to download and save a large file (approximately 2 to 3.5 GB).

Make sure you have a reliable internet connection and sufficient data storage available on one of the following:

If you are not ready to download, or are using a mobile device, an email link to download the product can be sent to you after you verify your product key. The link in the email is valid for 24 hours.

After you verify your product key below, you will download a disc image (ISO file) and use it to create a bootable USB or DVD.  This will require ISO burning software such as the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool.

Enter product key

Enter the 25 character product key that came with your product purchase.  Your product key is located inside the box that the Windows DVD came in, on the DVD or in a confirmation e-mail that shows that you purchased Windows.

Product Key
Not case sensitive
What is a product key?

A product key is a 25-character code that's used to activate Windows. Activation helps verify that Windows hasn't been used on more PCs than the Microsoft Software License Terms allow.

Your product key is on a card inside the box that the Windows DVD came in—or in an email that shows that you bought Windows. It looks like this: PRODUCT KEY: XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX. If you bought a PC with Windows preinstalled, contact the PC manufacturer for the original key.

It's a good idea to save a copy of your product key for your records in case you ever need to reinstall Windows.

It kills me I still have to run Windows 7 in a virtual environment. Due to encrypted email with OWA SMIME control it's not compatible with any version of IE above 9. I wish there was a way to install IE9 on Windows 8.1.

Found this :

 

 

You can tweak your registry to force IE to open in IE9 mode.

 

Look for in RegEdit:

 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION

 

Create a DWORD as iexplore.exe and give value 9999. (decimal value)

 

Restart your IE and it will open in IE9 mode

Well, Microsoft is not out to give away much for free. However, not to allow OEM Users to download the Win 7 ISOs is beyond ridiculous, as they have as much a genuine License as other users. They can check the License and see if it is fake or not, so I don't understand their reasoning behind that.

Probably has to do with the huge widespread OEM exploit that took place in windows 7 I would think but I agree with you, anyone with the product key that is installed should be able to be validated here.
