If I were you, I would just delete his files and make yourself the only user and admin because there's no problem in that. If he has any useful files then you can always copy that over to your account.
The only problem I see here is if he has encrypted files and you want to somehow gain access to it.
I have access to the previous owners files; they are 13.2 GB.
Perhaps this might work:
I copy his folder and all the files over to my external HD and rename the folder to my name.
Next I delete the original folder.
Finally, I copy my folder back to the internal HD.
Is this a workable solution?
(I have the Windows 7 license but no CD's, just the restore portion on the hp partition.)
BTW I have Windows 7 Home Premium.
