Hello

Samba is for accessing a linux filesystem through your explorer and it runs on the linux machine

Cygwin X is a tool for running graphical linux applications on a windows machine.

Or if you were looking for a terminal server client check out freeNX as the terminal server, and use the client from nomachine on your windows machine to access the freeNX terminal server.

You need X Windows S/W installed on your Windows system.

There are commercial products like exceed X-Win32 or cygwin/X which is free.

The normal graphical interface yiu see on a Linux system is X Windows. Several commercial versions are available for Windows (Hummingbird, WRQ Reflections, and others) that allow you to see on your Windows box what you'd see on Linux. Normally, external connections to X will be disabled, and firewall rules will block the traffic. Both will have to be enabled.

Also have a look at VNC, a screen-scraper technology. Most Linux distributions include a VNC server, and both commercial and free clients are available for Windows.  By default, the VNC server will have to be enabled, and as with X Windows, the firewall rules will have to be changed to allow the traffic.

Technically, these technologies are very different, which might have implications if you're using a slow connection (like dialup). But for most cases, the end-user  experience will be the same.
