They mean the same thing, along with "fully agree" or "entirely agree". Either means agreement to the maximum possible and without any element of disagreement. "Totally" has picked up a connotation of sounding a bit ditzy but that seems to be on the decline. Otherwise, use whichever sounds better in context.
