Try using runas.

runas /user:domain\username cmd.exe
runas /user:domain\username "C:\path_to_Script"

Problem is it will prompt for a password everytime unless you use the /savecred switch then it will ask just the once.

There is a VBscript that automates it with a password here.

You could alway create domain user that has Admin privs with no password  but doesn't have access to any of the server shares. That would allow you to run the scripts above that ryanjones suggested
