    If it was me I would go for resetting the PC, then it would be set as though it was new, no left overs

    Settings, Update and Recovery, Recovery, Reset this PC

    Can't do that buddy, as I have put programms on it for her. That she wouldn't know how to do as she's only 8 things I am thinking about are logins emails Facebook passwords Etc. Mate.

    Ok, not used ccleaner but that sounds like the type of thing it removes, hopefully someone with more knowledge of it replies

    Another possibility would be to create a new account for your Niece, then all your data is ignored and the programms would remain

    You could do it now. Make a new admin account called hollyoaks777, sign onto it and delete her current account. Then make a new account for her (with the same name as the one you deleted if you want) which will then be be clean.

    Probably make hers a standard account (as she is 8) and leave your account existing on the computer for repairs later on...
