    Just reinstall windows and set your own name as the owner.

    Reinstall the operating system but reformat the hard disk drive first.

    Computers made a couple of years ago has a recovery partition that omits you from using a reinstall CD.

    first check to see if there is any bank accounts saved on there, or cookies to other money filled accounts.

    Most reputable pawn shops that accept used computers at their shop, have someone on the payroll that can clean the hard drive or take it to a computer repair service for the hard drive to be cleaned.
