Can anyone tell me
C:\Program Files\Symantec\pcAnywhere\awhost32.exe what is
my firewall keeps asking me do I want to block it but I am not sure what it is. Is it some form of spyware, or can it be used for remote access to my pc? Please help.

Symantec is the company name for Norton.

Do you have Norton anti-virus or similar installed?

As the location suggests, it is part of PCAnywhere - I presume you have this installed on your machine.

I did have norton but now i hav avg

Anything installed was done by my ex husband, all I am worried about it that he would be able to remotely access my computer which he has done previously.

~Go into add/remoive programs and uninstall any symantec software there that you don't want, PCAnywhere being one of them I suspect.
