I am afraid you would have to uninstall the remote agents manually. There is no automated way of doing so

If you had something like SCCM in place you could set a policy to uninstall the agent. However, there is always a good chance that you would need to restart the servers anyways.
Your only other option to try besides what has been mentioned is to look into creating an AD policy to unpublish the application from each server.

Unfortunately as mentioned by the Gentlemen above you would not be able to automate the removal of the remote agent. :"Save possibly the suggestion by CraigV". You would need to uninstall through Add/Remove programs... See documentation below ....

(Thumbs up to both suggestions above)
