Click on my computer, look at c drive, all system files should be on that. When you are there check for any partitions, these could be holding a load of memory. Drastically you could reformat your drive and reload the operating system, assuming he gave you the CD

Since you have only just got the PC, it may be best to create yourself as a new user and copy one of the other profiles to it. click here for how to do it.
Once you have your own profile running as you want it you can delete the other two users from Control Panel, User Accounts. If you select to delete all files this will remove the folders from Documents and Settings.
Before you start, I would suggest going through Add Remove Programs and uninstall anything you don't need.
