You have " hide files = /Desktop.ini/"

In any Windows computer, you will find both "desktop.ini" and 

Linux is case-sensitive, so "desktop.ini" is not covered by your 

I would advise you to use "hide files = /desktop.ini/Desktop.ini/".
That's what I am doing and it works.
I use it on the "global" section of "smb.conf" in order to cover all shares.
