I think Jason was saying that larger dots of paint won't come off. Very fine overspray may come off overspray that you can't necessarily see as much as you can feel.

Splatters or dots of paint may not come off, especially if they have too much time to dry. I got one dot 1/8" thick on the back of my car and it'* not coming off. =(

Worse comes to worse, if your car has a good coat of wax under the paint dots, you can pick them off one at a time with a fingernail. Notice I said fingernail, nothing harder/sharper (unless you're very good and patient). The wax will prevent good aheasion, so you should be able to peel the bigger stuff off before going with the other suggestions.

If you can't get it with claybar or chemicals, get these:

You may want to do some polishing afterwards though.

The car wasn't dirty the least bit, it hardly ever is lol. It did have about a month old wax on it so I'm hoping that'll help a little bit. The paint had already sat on the car I figure about 2 days when I found it, and my fingernails won't take it off, nor the bug and tar remover that I have, but it'* the cheap stuff so I'm not surprised. And it is just very small fine overspray, you can't even see it, but I can feel it and I'm OCD, so... no one would ever know it'* there but me, but it'* gonna annoy me to death until I get it off.
