  • If the trial installed on the older PC is still active, yes, using the same LiveID will automatically make it part of your Circle and it should be visible on a Hub PC. If it has expired, and that LiveID was used to purchase/activate a subscription on another machine, simply open OneCare on the older PC and click Subscribe - enter the LiveID and password for your subscription and it will become part of the Circle and become activated.
