We can't tell you how to restore to factory condition if you don't even mention what make or model computer you have.

If it's a computer which came preinstalled with Win7 then it should have a partition which can be run from boot by tapping a hotkey to recover to factory condition.

If not or if that partition has been damaged or overwritten, then you'lll need to find a WIn7 retail installer to clean reinstall with the Product Key on COA sticker or your retail packaging.

Here are steps to unlock any retail installer to choose your licensed version and get a perfect reinstall: Reinstalling Windows 7
