    For a second hand computer your ideal option would be to completely wipe the hard drive and reinstall Windows. This way you know your starting with a clean computer that doesn’t have have viruses, spyware or other nasty stuff on it. This also takes care of any leftover Windows Passwords you don’t know about.

    If you chose not to do that, and just want an old user account deleted:
    Go into Control Panel, select Users and you should be able to locate a list of user accounts for the computer, select the accounts you want to delete using that screen.
