Peeling wood floor problem

Please help! My wood floor is peeling (see image). It looks pretty good underneath, so I'm thinking of ways to help it peel faster. I'd rather not get the whole floor redone. Any advice?Name:  IMAG1687.jpg

Pictures so fuzzy it's hard to tell much.
Looks like someone painted over a polyed hardwood floor without any prep work before painting.
Is the floor real hardwood? Lift out a floor register if there is one and see if you can see how thick it is and if you can see exposed wood grain.

No register

Thanks for your response. There is no register. We didn't have this work done. Don't know what to do. We've been living with this peeling floor. It's only one room in the house, but it's getting really annoying. If it is real hardwood, we should have it sanded down and refinished? I think we might just cover it up instead.

Do you know if the paint is latex or oilbase? If it's latex, denatured alcohol or products like 'goof off' or 'oops' might remove the paint, otherwise sanding and refinishin would be best.

btw - welcome to the forums!
