It will be exactly like it came from the factory, with the programs it shipped with.

Back up your data and gather your other program installers first.

Afterwards Clean up factory bloatware

Have a look through the information in this tutorial at the link below for some additional ideas and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

Clean Install : Factory COA Activation Key

If you don't want the factory bloatware added during the install, have a look at this tutorial linked above, it's certainly a lot better method than trying to remove it all after the clean install has completed.
