You need to set your account as an administrator account in users in control panel or open a new user account and use as an administrator account instead of a normal account. If you are unable to set any account as administrator the option to do so was not installed during the windows installation, therefore you will have to re install windows i'm afraid.

It's not important / necessary to change your email passwords / user names / anything. What's important is that you *erase* such settings so if he tries to log onto any website or into any program that the program(s) or website(s) ask for a username / password. This is most easily accomplished through Internet Options where you clear forms, passwords, autofills, cookies, etc.

Now, if you want a *super easy* fix, and assuming you're a Windows user, go to your admin settings and change your username's password (so he doesn't know it) then create a new username / password for him. That way he gets a "new" user account and *nothing* (except programs like Office, various games, applications, etc.) gets transferred over. Any installed programs will not (*should* not) carry over your user data.

BEST way to solve your problem is to reload the factory image using the restore CDs or BIOS options so that when he turns on the computer, it has the fresh "out of the box experience."
