Hi,

Yes, you must clean the old off and put new on. You can buy a cleaner at a computer store and I recommend Artic Silver only. You can use 90+ percent alcohol to clean off the old. Here are some instructions:

Note: Be sure you don't use that 70% alcohol that you have in your medicine cabinet, you have to get the 90+ at a drug store.
