DHCP Client service state when running static IPs

I have a bunch of servers with static IPs. I have a group policy which disables the DHCP client service. Is the any reason why I can't set the dhcp client service to manual or automatically so that services like WinHTTP Web Proxy Auto-Discovery Service do not fail at startup? The DHCP service wont screw up the static IPs or something stupid like that?

Leave the DHCP client service on automatic startup, or you'll disable dynamic DNS updates as well! Yes, it's safe to keep it running if you have a static IP.
