What is the altimate key to unlock a computer with windows 7 OS

The procedure is in the menu under Settings.
A hard reset should not be necessary to change a password -- IT WILL WIPE EVERYTHING OUT and put it back to the way it was when you got it.

This is for my Droid Pro - yours may be slightly different. Check your manual.

To reset your phone to factory settings and erase all
the data on your phone, touch Menu > Settings
> Privacy > Factory data reset > Reset phone.
Warning: All data on your phone will be deleted.
(Nothing on your memory card is deleted.)

I want to reset my desktop to factory settigs but following the maual instructions does not work

Dell system includes a restore utility called 'Dell Symantec System Restore' to reset or restore your Dell system to factory setting. This utility is convenient because you're not forced to use the Windows startup CD to restore your computer.

Step 1: First backup all your important data and restart your computer.
Step 2: Press 'F8' if you are using Win7/Vista or 'Ctrl + F11' if you has Win Xp. 'Advanced Boot Option' menu options will be opened.
Step 3: Choose 'Repair your computer' from the 'Advanced Boot Options' from the menu and press 'Enter'.
Step 4: Select language setting and press 'Enter'. Now Login window will be appeared.
Step 5: Now login as administrator to continue the factory reset process.
Step 6: Click 'Dell Factory Image Restore' followed by the 'Next' button.
Step 7: Choose the check box marked 'Yes, reformat disk drive and recover system software to manufacturer condition'. Once the check box is chosen, simply select the 'Next' button and your Dell computer/laptop is renewed to factory setting.
Step 8: Press 'Finish' once it has been done. ...

This process will erase all your previous changes that have been made to the Dell computer and reset the configuration settings to factory setting.

By factory settings, I am assuming you are reffering to the Operating System, or Windows XP.  If this is not a correct assumption, please let me know.
Unfortunately, there is no way to reset the PC to a factory default configuration with out the discs provided by the manufacturer.  Those discs not only contain the operating system install files, but also any drivers that are used that are specific to models made by that manufacturer.
Newer PCs skip the need of discs by creating a "Recovery Partition" on your hardrive.  Think of this as a snapshot taken of your PC just as it leaves the manufacturer.  It is possibly to boot to this partition, erase you current configuration, and restore this "factory default" configuration.  Unfortunately, this option is not available on your specific PC model.
It is possible to re-install the Windows operating system by using any type of Windows install media (CD,DVD,etc), but you will also have to download any special drivers (video card, sounds card, printer) from the manufacturer's web site.
