A caveat:

Windows knows not to list shares that end in $.  But if you have anyone who
uses smbclient, it doesn't know any better and will happily list them.

browsable = no always works, though.

I assume you mean hide, as in hidden when browsing Network Neighborhood or
My Network Places??

If so, add a '$' (without the quotes) in the share name, i.e. share$
