Thanks for contacting us on the new community! 

It's not advisable to have more than one security program on your computer since it may result in a conflict and the programs may not work properly. So we suggest removing AVG Protection and use Trend Micro Maximum Security only. You may refer on the link below to remove AVG:
Programs to remove before installing Trend Micro Security

Trend Micro Maximum Security is designed to provide comprehensive PC security protection. As long as you have Trend Micro Maximum Security installed, your laptop is protected, and the AVG warning notifications prior to AVG un-install can be ignored.

Please let us know if your question was answered. Thanks!
