Can super glue be removed from plastic??

I had to super glue the two bottom nuts onto the back of my new windscreen to install. I didn't notice the smear of super glue down the front of my new windscreen until it was already dry.
does anyone know what will remove the super glue without damaging the windscreen? Thanks

Acetone is the only chance I think. I dont know how well the screen will hold up to it though. Hint- fingernail polish is acetone.

the only problem with acetone is that, thats the stuff they use to remove acrylic nails.....im afraid it would mess the screen up...make it look frosted or blurry like....
