Are you wanting to wipe completely and restore to stock? If so you can use kies and perform a firmware upgrade. It will wipe and set the phone up with the latest software for your device.

If you just want to unroot then in Supersu open the menu and select "Full Unroot"

To check knox counter HOLD ALL THREE volume down, center home, and power button.

I'd like to know how the kies method works as when I try to check for firmware on my note 3 it says AT&T firmware doesn't support this method of upgrading. I plug in my note 10.1 2014 and kies works fine....

So I downloaded the stock N900AUCUBMI9_OneClickBin.exe for ODIN. Can you use odin to flash the phone back to this firmware? If so, will it trip KNOX?

Also just noticed someone posted this guide for how to do it:
