A factory reset wipes all user data and returns it to out of the box state so you need to reinstall all your apps again that you had installed previously

How to undo a factory reset on Vodafone Smart Ultra 6 phone

Sorry. Factory reset is just that. All data is deleted. No recovery possible. If you set up a Google account (not familiar with this phone I am assuming it is an android) it might be backed up to the Google servers but only if you set it up that way originally.

Why does my Samsung galaxy centura freeze up overtime I try to log on to Facebook and runs slow all of the time?

Your Samsung runs slow all of the time because it has only 512 MB Ram and a single core cpu. You can install clean master from google play and run it or you can do a factory reset(! you wiil lost your data if you do this Menu" -> "System settings" -> "Backup & reset" -> "Factory data reset").

Had to do factory reset, now unable to download apps from google playstore like youtube etc, any help?

I suggest that you troubleshoot first, instead of a hard reset. Factory reset is within settings.
If any google app won't download nor install, it's probably because your google services are not updated or is corrupted. Try the next steps before factory reset.
1. Go to settings, scroll down to app.
2. From here search for PlayStore and tap it.
3. Tap Clear Cache and Clear data.
4. Go Back.
5. Search now for Google services, this one is not under the download tab, which you can notice at the top of the screen, instead got to All and scroll down until you find it.
6. Tap Clear Cache and Clear data if available.
7. Reboot phone or tablet.
Most of the time this procedure do work, some people also opt to remove the google account and sign in after the reboot.
After the boot, open the PlayStore, accept the agreement and try to download anything from the PlayStore that is compatible with your tablet. Also, just to be sure, go to settings, security, look for Unknown Sources and enable it. This feature allow you to install any apk file that is not from the PlayStore.

My husband has a nextbook 8 tablet and he downloaded a game from google play store last night and then shut it off and this morning he turned it on and all his apps are lost and Wi-Fi is also lost, he

Im guessing that the app/game was corrupt or incompatible with your tablet. You will have to reset your tablet to factory settings and restore your apps and other items from google, if you had it set up for this. To do a reset go to settings - about tablet - reset - factory. Then let it restart.

Can I re-install the OS on my Nexus7?

You can reset the device by doing a factory reset or full wipe.
But if there is any data you need perform a backup before the reset.
A great app for this in Android is the ROM Manager from Clockworkmod:

How to remove a password from google nexus 7

I believe the only way to reset your password would be a hard reset. This will also remove all of data and return the device back to the original factory settings.

Android market wont allow me to download apllications or upgrade existing apps

I was able to get out of this state by doing a factory reset on the phone and setting up my Google account again. I had to reinstall all my applications and lost sms history etc. It seems to also work if you do a reset and setup your account on another phone, then the first phone starts working again. Of course you have to find another phone to reset for that to work.

I have not found a way on the web to reset my Google account when this happens. Logging in/out of GMail and Google Talk does not seem to trigger the reset.

Make a list of all the apps you have before you do the reset so you can reinstall them all.
