In my case :

VMware Workstation Pro
Windows 11 installation with software and Windows update, software installation (vpn, Java, SOS Scanner etc)
Creation of a snapshot

On a dedicated PC, I download various malware that I test in Sandbox to rule out any false positives. The same goes for the urls I select

Once everything's ready, I start my test.

I don't do much testing, but when I do I do it in VirtualBox. It's free and you can make snapshots to easily revert virtualized system to previous state.
