To hide a server from the browser, edit:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer \Parameters
Add value Hidden (REG_DWORD). Set it to 1.
Reboot the server. It may take some tome for the server to disappear from the browse lists, dependign on the refresh period and size of the network.
