Should I remove moisture barrier?

Recently pulled up carpeting to find some old linolium and found a black - what I think is a painted on moisture barrier on top of concrete.

Anyone know if I can leave this stuff and paint over it or should I remove it?

Thanks;

dk, that is probably the mastic from the vinyl. I don't know what you'd have to do to prime it to accept paint, but there are some good moderators on this forum who will be along to help you.

Is it the floorboards that are creaking or the joists?
