I was told by Apple to reset my phone to factory settings as i had a software problem which caused my 4S to switch off when the battery was at 20% They said not to restore from a back up as the problem would be restored aswell. So instead I restored from icloud. Does icloud restore settings? I want to know if the problem will be saved in the icloud backup.

This is what is backed up by iCloud. Please read this article from Apple support:

iCloud: iCloud Backup

Please note that restoring from iCloud is also restoring from a backup (iCloud backup). The Apple representative was most likely telling you to set your device up as new including re-downloading your apps, reconfiguring your email & social accounts, etcetera just like you did when you first purchased your device.

^^^ Yeah backing up your info on the computer and also in icloud are the same things. If you restored from either backup, you would be restoring the corrupted settings.

Definitely. I you back up with iCloud then you will restore everything.
