    You can download the El Capitan installer from the app store, and when installing, wipe the drive, and install fresh OS.

    2007 "factory" settings would be for macOS Tiger.

    What version of macOS is running now? If it is running El Capitan and has a recovery partition you should be able to boot into macOS Recovery and get back to a clean installation of El Capitan using the instructions here.
