removal of dried latex paint from carpet

Is there any way to remove dried latex paint from nylon carpet? There is quiet a lot of dried paint in several areas that I want to remove.

Experiment with either Oops or Goof Off both are latex paint removing products designed for drips etc.Test for possible effects on carpet first in an out of the way spot.Expect some color transfer to cleaning cloth regardless.

I've used it on carpet but not sure if it was nylon.It worked but some carpet dye also came with it however it was not a noticable amount.

When wiping and scraping doesn't work, and/or Oops!/Goof Off! can't be used or doesn't work, sometimes cutting out the goobered strands is the only way

I've used drug store grade isopropyl rubbing alcohol with a paper towel. Works everytime with no ill side effects.
