I was having the same problem some days ago and i found the "map system" 
and other "map" options in the man of the smb.conf that may suit your needs.

This options tells samba that "system files" of windows gets hiden 
attribute. I don't try it yet because i just can't apply the changes 
right know. Im going to have to wait to the weekend. Tell me if it works.
