How do I restore my laptop to factor settings?

I have an Acer Aspire 5733Z Laptop that I bought in November that is supposed to have 4 GB of RAM, as well as the 500 GB memory. I let my younger brother use it one night, and he tried to stream a movie online, but instead of just clicking play, he downloaded something, thinking it was required to view the movie. Unfortunately, what he's downloading is causing a lot of problems with my computer. I'd like to restore my laptop to it's out of the box factory settings, but I don't know how. The one time I've ever tried to do this, it did wipe the memory- but it also took the boot manager file, so my laptop couldn't turn on.

So to avoid another mishap such as this, I thought I'd ask. I'm not tech savvy, and those of my friends who are, are unavailable to ask about this particular problem. So if you can help, Thank you very much, and I appreciate it. ^_^

Also, how long does it usually take to do the factory restore?
