Welcome Solarpowere92 to the windows 7 forums.
When you say your going to reset your machine to the factory settings, do you mean restore your original operating system from the recovery options?
I see where you are asking the same question about office 2010.
If you recover your operating system via the recovery options for your machine, and it had office 2010 installed but not activated, then you should remember to save the activation codes for the office 2010.
Re the Operating System, it probably is a OEM copy of windows and can be activated quite easily as you have a legal copy with the activation codes that you already have. You haven't changed anything but just re-installed the same system,
