End user query

If I get a used computer with an operating system installed , do I become the end user for license purposes ? If so how do I remove the previous owner's identity ? Just removing them from the log-in screen doesn't seem to work.

These are the XP powertoys, which give more options to tweak your system, I believe one of them give the option to change the user name, but I am not sure which.
