Removing Wallpaper Backing from Wall

I have been trying to remove the backing off an old plaster wall that had not been prepared properly. It is just not coming off. I tried all kinds of glue remover. It takes hours for one little spot. Could I paint over it?

You can paint over wallpaper. It can not be peeling. If seams show, you may need to go over the seams with some sheet rock mud. If it is shiny or textured, you need to very lightly sand it.

You have to put a primer on the spot and paint over it.
