You will not be able to use any application further so you have to take backup of all the data, application programs to avoid any kind of loss. Always save your drivers and other software programs before restoring the system on a separate media.
The main consequence will be that all the licensed applications will get deleted and you will lose the key of that application software once you restore the factory settings.
