    Hi

    I am a bit of a technophobe so please bare with me.

    I am about to list my SP3 on Ebay. I only have one account set up on it but it is an admin account and I can't seem to delete it. Obviously i don't want any prospective buyer to be able to see this account.

    Can anyone please advise me how I can delete this ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Go thru the Reset process. Don't set it up afterwards.
    Settings, Change PC Settings, Update and Recovery, Recovery, Remove everything and Reinstall Windows.
    If you want there's an option to do a secure erase as well. You now have a Factory Fresh Surface.

    You should do the secure erase.
