I have a new laptop, an ASUS ROG G752, and TrendMicro Maximum Security is installed and running as near as I can tell. For some reason I seem to have 2 TM icons, one says Trend Mico Maximum, the other, just Trend Mico. When I click on the former it say "Protected" and all of the TM functions are running and accessible. When I click on the latter it says "User Account Control" "OK to Run Trend Micro Installer".etc. Install what? is my question, it looks like everything is already installed. Also, my old laptop, also an ASUS (N53S Win7) will become my wife's, but I want to keep Trend Micro on it, and assume I can. But first I need to solve the mystery of the two TM icons.

Thanks for helping out as usual! @woodartisan55

Hi @tdrhoa1! Welcome to the community! Based on your description it seems like the latter icon is a leftover installer for your Trend Micro program. You can simply ignore the 2nd icon or delete it if you want. By the way, that is a nice ROG laptop that you have there :)
