Windows 10: Deleted user account

    Deleted user account

    I have done something really stupid... I am selling my old laptop to a friend, and googled how to delete my user account. I did what it said and deleted a post in the register. Not anywhere on the page did it say that I shouldn't delete the account without creating a new one first. Now I can't get in the computer... When I start it it shows "my icon" and my name, and below that it says: (translated) The service User Profile Service failed to log in. It's not possible to read the user profile.

    So how do I fix this?
