If I go into icloud.com and log in and use my "mail@me.com or "mail@icloud.com" on a Windows 7 machine, could those emails or the email accounts get a virus? Thanks.

The accounts themselves no. Ensure that your Windows machine is running an up-to-date anti-virus software and you'll be fine..

I'm not sure what your question is.

Can your Windows machine become infected by opening a viral email attachment someone sent you? Yes.

Is the Apple iCloud server or an email already sitting in the iCloud server going to become infected because you have some malware on your Windows machine already? No.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
