the last owner of the home I bought in their wisdom attached corner protectors with what looks ike a silicon based glue of some sort. The protectors came away from the wall without a problem is I know "gobs" of silicon on the wall that will not come over easily.

I have tried scraping which is very slowly and is damaging the wall.

Does anyone know of a chemical remover or some other way of removing the slilcon?

There are chemical caulk removers/solvents.

I have not used them, but I have used Goof Off on silicon caulk.

It does not "desolve it", but rather it causes it to swell up and become soft and easier to get off.

But it will still take a lot of work with a things like a utility knife to cut off the bulk, scrapping with a putty knife, and rubbing with a "tuffy pad".

A tuffy pad is a woven plastic pad like brillo pads.
