      There are several ways to do this.

      If you are sure that nobody will ever need to access your computer, you can simply DISABLE the SERVER service fron Services in Control Panel.

      However, you need to consider how anti-virus updates and patches are being put on your PC. In most organisations these are pushed from a server to your PC. If you disable the server service you will need to manually COLLECT updates.

      This will fix the problem

      Try disabling File & Print Sharing.

      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\parameters]

      “HIDDEN”=dword:00000001

      Your PC will be hidden from network browsing but still accessible.
