I received a new Lap Top (HP) and it has a 30 day version of Macafee. I already have Trend Micro Max Security on my desktop with up to three devices. I see how to install to another device on your tutorial. Am I required to uninstall Macafee first before I add Trend Micro on my new computer or will it be removed automatically by the installation of Trend Micro?
