What's the best way to completely remove everything from a computer, without re-installing?

I want to remove all data, cookies etc. from a PC I'm giving to a friend.

I want Microsoft Office and tools to remain. I would like to select other applications to delete or keep.

How can I do that?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You can create a new user account for your friend (with administrative rights), switch into that account, and delete your old account. This should remove the C:\Users\Jerry folder, which contains all your files and application settings.
