Removing Network Printers

Need to remove old network printers/copiers from all user's machines.  I have a Powershell script that remove all the specific printers/copiers as we don't want to remove all networked printers such as locally shared printers (we are in a virtual environment and share the locally connected printers over the network to the virtual machine).  Now I know that I can just put the script in a logon script and deploy it through GP but we need to run this today without interrupting the users by a logon/off of the computers.  Is there another way to deploy the Powershell script remotely?  Or perhaps there is another solution to remove the select printers through Group Policy?  We have already tried deleting the printers through Group Policy via the route of User Config > Preferences > Control Panel Settings > Printers.  But that only removes the network printers/copiers that were installed by Group Policy....not those network printers/copiers manually installed through control panel, which we also need removed.
