    From the AD side you can just delete the computer account, then from the desktop side rebuilding it from scratch.

    I did delete it from AD, computer seems to be part of that domain.

    Ok, if you did this first it could have complicated things. I wouldn't worry about it, simplest would be to rebuild it from scratch.

    To clean install from scratch you can boot from the windows 10 install media, delete / recreate partition, and continue the install.

    If you cannot rebuild, you could possible try to run DISM to repair the OS.
