Just installed the latest version, but the icon for last year's update.exe is still on my desktop. Shouldn't this have been auto removed?

Not much more to add to this basic question.

Thanks for letting us know your concern. Unfortunately, in current version of Maximum Security, we did not include any features to delete the previous installer automatically. You need to uninstall it by yourself. 

This is a valuable feedback for us, and we'll definitely pass your idea to our product develop team. We hope we could make this more straight forward in the future.

Automatic uninstall definitely needed.

Which icons should we delete from the desktop?  There are quite a few.  How do we distinguish one year from the next?

Thank you for asking. We suggest you delete the Trend Micro product's installer file or folder immediately when the installation completed.

You can right-click on a file or folder which you want to check > select "Properties" > choose "General" tab to see the created time and modified time of the file or folder.

Please let me know if this answer meets your needs.
