    I've got a plastic scrapper , blade chips quite easy. White spirt might help take the paint off ... I refuse to use a metal blade now . If white spirt doesn't take it off it stays on the glass .

    Try hot water and a degreaser, one shop that I used to have used to put paint stuff on window and it was a nightmare to try and scrub off, but they gave me some type of degreaser to spray on and came off a lot easier with a microfibre, probably just depends on what kind of paint it is.
