That won't work on C drive, can't use windows to wipe itself, system won't allow it.

Unplug from internet.
Boot the pc but while windows loads, turn it off. Do this 3x. That'll put you into the repair screen. Choose repair, command prompt.
Type diskpart
Type list disk
Look for the disk number of the C drive, it'll be the biggest one usually unless you have partitioned the entire ssd into seperate drives
Type select disk # (whichever the number is, most likely it's 1)
Type clean
Type convert gpt (if it's not already listed as a gpt drive)

That'll wipe the drive. If you are nervous about anything remaining, you can use 'clean all' instead of 'clean' command but realize that writes over the entire drive totally destroying everything any...

That'll wipe the drive. If you are nervous about anything remaining, you can use 'clean all' instead of 'clean' command but realize that writes over the entire drive totally destroying everything any anything. Any installation after 'clean' will start overwriting prior inaccessible data anyways, so 'clean all' is of little use to you if reusing the drive.

Then insert USB media and reboot. You'll be starting windows install from a basically brand new, clean ssd.

Windows default is zero remote access, get it up and running first, before plugging the internet back in. Only after windows is done will you go back to Microsoft account and reapply the registration and any updates.

You might also consider accessing your router Admin page and changing the password.
