I am aware of a GPO or registry hack that blocks installation of drivers.  See https://yourbusiness.azcentral.com/prevent-users-installing-printers-14940.html.

Since printers are user objects, we had to use a Kace Script engine to uninstall the printers from individual user profiles.

The script is using this command rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /dn /n \\{system name}\{printer name} under the local user context.  I'm not sure how to run this apart from a tool like Kace's scripting engine.

I don't think PSExec will run in the local user context without being interactive.

Do you use Kace?  If so, I'll provide more details.
