    Try using a paint stripper. Leave it on long enough to aid in the removal of the paint. Depending how much is there you may have to use a scrub brush.

    What kind of paint? If it's latex, let it dry and scrape it right up. If it's alkyd, you are in trouble. It might come up with a pressure washing, before it cures. Anything solvent will just get it deeper into the pores.

    Muratic acid will do it. Rubber gloves, protective clothing and Eyewear required!

    If it is latex, simply apply alcohol, let it sit a few minutes, then rinse. I use the 90% alcohol from pharmacy, but think I have seen it in WalMart. Scrub with a brush if it needs a bit of extra help. Wish you well.

    I'd suggest using a pressure washer.

    It's a driveway right? Cement driveways are very rough - purposefully. The paint seeps down into the cracks and cranies. natural weathering will remove some but a pressure washer is your best bet.
