TOTAL SECURITY SOMEHOW SHUT DOWN MY FIREWALL AND INSTALLED THEIR PROGRAM ON MY COMPUTER.
THEY HAVE FIXED THE PROGRAM SO YOU CANNOT UNINSTALL IT.
IT COMES UP OVER AND OVER AND HAS OTHER POP UPS TELLING YOU WEBSITES ARE NOT SAFE (INCLUDING THIS ONE)
THEY WILL NOT LET YOU BACK INTO THE WEBSITE AND KEEP TRYING TO SELL THEIR SOFTWARE.
I AM ANOYED AND ANGERED. I WANT TO GET ALL THIS CRAP OFF MY COMPUTER WITHOUT PAYING FOR SOFTWARE TO TO IT (AND SOME IT SEEMS IS FROM THE SAME COMPANY.
WHY CAN'T THESE GUYS BE SHUT DOWN FOR THE SCAM THAT THEY ARE?
ANY FEEDBACK WOULD BE APPREICATED.

Total Security is, as you have found, a scam. It's one of a whole series of such programs: Windows AntiVirus 2008, Windows AntiVirus 2009, ...
To remove it, you first have to stop the tsc.exe process from running, otherwise it will block all attempts at removing Total Security.
Then you can use a utility such as Malwarebytes AntiMalware to remove it (download the free version).
See How to remove Total Security (Uninstall Guide) for step-by-step instructions.
