There is an unknown computer that pops up on my Home Network. The name is Full Ford Properties KFFOWI, MAC address 84:d6:d0:fc:a4:9b. How do I remove it?

Use WPA or WPA2 encryption. If you are already using one of those change the encryption key.
The first the sections of a MAC address can be used to help identify (although this can be spoofed) the device.

In this case, "84:d6:d0" is registered to Amazon Technologies.
No magic. Change the encryption key and reconnect the devices you own and know.
Doing a quick Google search seems to indicate this might be an Amazon device such as a Kindle Fire or Alexa and may be showing up if you have WPS enabled in your router, if you don't have any Amazonn devices then try turning WPS off, disable any unsecured guest network. You can also change the wireless password as mentioned above and see if anything loses connectivity.
