If you've removed all your confidential files, sell it "as is" and let the buyer do the factory recovery themselves if they so wish. That's the usual practice when selling a PC. As long as it loads Windows and works properly, you've met all your obligations as the seller.

✔ Best Answer
Just to add that although many people don't know how, if you just delete your personal files it is possible to recover them with software. Unless you do a security erase (multiple passes) with software, that danger will always exist. This program will do it for you reasonably well but it takes longer than ordinary deletion:

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
