removing "tar glue" from wooden floors

We are taking up the wall-to-wall carpet in the apartment we just bought, as we want to put rugs down on the parquet wooden floor instead. However, we have discovered that one section of the floor is covered with "tar glue." What is the best way to remove this? Would it be better _not_ to scrape it all off and put in new parquet tiles instead?

There are products "out there" specifically formulated for the type of removal you are hunting. "Desolveit" seems to work well on glue but the best I have ever found for tar is from Amway, it is an automobile product called "gel bug and tar remover" I don't even know if they sell it anymore. Plus I know Amway is now known as Quixtar.
I DO NOT SELL THIS STUFF, as evidenced by the lack of link to buy it from me. However, you asked what worked and this does.
good luck and remember, it wasn't your spouse (or kids, or dog) that hit your thumb with the hammer!
