Livesafe Subsciption to New Laptop with Preinstalled


I recently purchased an HP Laptop which came with Livesafe pre-installed. I activated it and it was supposed to have 30 days included but expired in 7. That is really not the issue though. What is, is I have a Dell Desktop with a Multi-Device Livesafe Subscription and I want to use that with the HP but I see no way to do that without uninstalling the one on the HP laptop and using the link from the Dell one. I really don't want to be bothered uninstalling and reinstalling and going through everything all over again. Is there a way to just add just the subscription in the new HP laptop without doing all of that? Thanks! Jay
