Removing old upvc trim adhesive

I've recently moved a window that was installed in 2010 to a new location.

It looks like the old cloaking profile was stuck to the window with clear silicone which is very easy to peel off as expected.

However the edge between the cloaking profile and window seems to have been sealed with a brittle white glue that snaps and leaves a jagged edge on both the cloaking profile and the frame.

I'm struggling to get this residue off, does anyone know what would have been used so I can figure out the beat plan of action to remove it?

Could be superglue, or stelmex, stelmex is a nightmare to get off but you can buy superglue solvent cheaply.

Ah, ha, Stelmex looks exactly like it.

Any tips on removing it or is it mechanical removal only?
