I have Trend Micro on one computer. I just got another computer and attempted to install Trend Micro on it. I was notified that I now had Trend Micro on too many devices and would have to remove it from a device. I only have it on two devices, well under the five device agreement. What is the problem?

Hi mail4t.kuhl,

Thank you for posting and welcome to the community!

I managed to check your account here and I verified that you have a new Trend Micro Maximum Security subscription. To fix the issue, you need to use the new serial number for both of your devices. 

Here's the installation guide for Windows and Mac:
