How do I remove program files and program files (x86) & How do I remove Windows Firewall exceptions for programs?

I've downloaded some programs off of the internet that seem to be giving my computer problems. How do I remove their program files? Each time I try it says I have it open in another program (which I don't). Also, I created some exceptions on Windows Firewall for them, and I want to know how to remove those exceptions. (Oh, and I just not tried to remove one of the programs, It keeps saying: Do you want to allow this program to make changes to your computer? Publisher:Unknown Location: This hard drive, and when I click on "no", it says "Installer was interrupted during the removal process.)
