    How do I 'remove' a profile and all of its contents?


    I am running windows 10 and selling my tower to a friend.

    I want to clear all of my data and essentially 'erase' my profile, and create a new admin account for my friend to use.

    Can someone direct me to a guide or explain how to do this?

    Hello Adam, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Since you're selling the PC, the best way to wipe the PC would be to clean install Windows 10.

    Do I need to be worried about the product serial if I upgraded from windows 8?

    In that case, you could also reset Windows to do so without having to worry about activation.
