remove paneling

I am new to this forum and not even sure if I am in the correct area. I need to remove paneling from my living room walls that have been glued on. The paneling is cheap and pulling away from the walls. Doesn't look like the drywall is damaged. Short on cash so, I can't put alot of money into this project. I thought about some kind of textured painting to hid the glue. Any ideas or suggestions would be helpfull.

Better to remove the glue and repair the drywall than to try to cover up the glue.
What have you tried to remove the glue?
A sander and fine grit make take off a lot of it.

The glue could possibly eat away at the new paint. I agree, remove the old adhesive.

Removing the glue doesn't cost much $ just requires a lot of elbow grease. It will also make for a better looking job.
