Hello,

What do you want to do? Do you want to leave a functioning copy of Windows for the next user? If not the best thing would be to use something like a GNU Linux disk and format it as a Linux disk. Then take the disk out of the computer and hit it hard several time with a heavy hammer.

If the former, reinstall windows.
