You should not have a factory reset button with a Tiny Computer.I take it you do not have the original XP CD.Probably you will just have the CD for installing the drivers etc.

Do you mean that you want to want to restore it back to how it was when you first bought it with the OS and all associated "junk" loaded with it or do you mean a clean install of the OS which means that "junk" will have been cleared out?

Here is an article explaining how to do both of these and a system repair.
