User access should be restricted on the share; both the share permissions and the security. Even if they don't have direct access to a mapped share, I certainly wouldn't rely solely on that.

I want to be disable network browsing, so when user click or type "Network" in Windows Explorer address bar they wont see any Computers from the Network.
I enabled "No Computers Near Me in Network Locations"; No Entire Network in Network Locations; Remove "Map Network Drive" and "Disconnect Network Drive" in GPO Management.
Also i created a policy "NoComputersNearMe = 1" but users still can see the network PCs from Windows Explorer.
Please, could somebody help with this problem!!!

I had the same issues and manage to get the same result by running this command on all my servers
net config server /hidden : yes
It basically hides the servers from the network display.
I have not got round to seeing if it works on workstations too. But will be trying shortly.

if you disable network discovery iirc pc's wont advertise themselves.
i also hide the navigation bar where "network" is in windows explorer
