How to do a factory restore on a Lenovo T410?

Anyways my Lenovo ThinkPad has started to go laggy all of a sudden and I think its because of a virus bc my anti-virus

software (Avast) always says that it blocks multiple urls that are supposedly infected and similar things like that, but factory restore seems to get rid of most viruses and I'm not exactly sure if my lappy has a virus or not, but it still lags and it could be adware or something like that meaning that it'd be a minor one, . I tried following guidelines how to do a factory reset but it wasnt the right guideline. But anyway, how do you factory restore a Lenovo T410? Any help would be greatly appreciated
