    first time installing Unity to try and start learning. my antivirus is stopping the following string.

    Generic ML PUA

    C:\Program Files\Unity Hub\resources\app.asar.unpacked\node_modules\@unityhub\unity-editor-license\build\Release\license.node

    it appears Unity will not run without this as it does not open after i quarantine the file.

    Is this ok to allow on PC?

    Yes, if you downloaded the installer from this website. It's most likely a false positive and the easiest way to find out is to allow it onto your system and then pass it to VirusTotal and see how many other scanners react to it.
