Computer will not reset or wipe clean.

I have followed all directions on this site to reset my computer to factory.

 

it does not reset.  At the last window it simply states “there was a problem resetting this computer.”

Hi

Just to interrupt, that you have 2 posts running, presumably about the same thing.

Windows Home

An evil person had my computer an is now the administrator of my computer.  He installed some bogus O.S. Called Windows 10 Home?  
I can not do anything because windows security will not allow me to open any files.  I want to simply completely purge my computer.

Perhaps only 1 post is needed.
