How do I restore to factory settings without losing installed factory programs?

If you restore to factory, all installed factory programs will be restored.

Any thing that you installed and all updates will have to be reinstalled. Your PC will be just like it was the day you first turned it on.

This.
A Factory Restore will take an image of Windows that contains a Windows installation with all your manufacturer programs on it from a Recovery partition on your HDD and use it to reinstall Windows automatically.

The Factory Restore procedure for your laptop can be found here :

Oups my bad ! For some reason, I was sure that Toshiba made the COMPAQ laptop series as I'm sure that my dad have an old one at home.
Anyway, here's the Factory Restore procedure for HP laptops with Windows 7 :
