First of all, I have masked your email for security purposes, and also updated the title to allow better search of this topic by other customers.

Congrats on getting a new machine! We checked your license and you still have one of three seats available for installation. You can simply install Trend Micro Maximum Security on the new tower using your existing license.

In the future, in case you do want to transfer license to another Windows PC, Mac, Android or iOS device, here's an online doc to help you manage the transfer:

Please let us know if you have other questions or encounter any problems at any time. Thanks!

Hello deneastle and welcome to the community!

May we know more details in which icon are you referring in this?

Were you able to access your Trend Micro account from the link below?

Trend Micro Account

If you are able to access the Trend Micro account, you will be able to remove a device from your subscription in there then register the device you wanted to use.

Also, I have checked your subscription and was able to confirm that you still have available slots in your account. You can refer to the link below on how to install in your devices.

Downloading, installing and activating the programs bundled with Trend Micro Security

Have a wonderful day!
