Go to Home Depot and buy a small can of "Goof Off". Don't get "Goo Gone" - it doesn't work as well on paint.
It smells horrible (like gasoline or something), but it works great to remove dried paint. Put some on a small rag (use an old one) and rub the paint gently. Don't attempt to wash the rag. Seal it up in a small ziplock bag or something and throw it away.

According to the Wear-Dated Stain Removal Guide By Getcleaningdone, for a paint stain, it's best to:


+ Remove as much of the paint itself as possible by blotting with a white paper towel or scraping with a dull knife.

+ Apply isopropyl rubbing alcohol to a clean white cloth, white paper towel or cotton ball. If the spot extends deep into the pile, blot until it is removed or no color transfers to the cloth. Do not allow the alcohol to penetrate the backing, as it will destroy the latex bond. If the spot is on the surface only, rub in one direction at a time.If rubbing removes the spot, blot dry and stack several white paper towels over the damp area.

+ Place a brick or similarly weighted object on the towels to keep them in contact with the carpet. The towels will absorb any stain wicking up from the backing to the carpet surface.

+ Allow the carpet to dry, remove the brick and towels, and brush up the pile.

Please remember never use a circular motion to remove a carpet spot as this may destroy the texture!
