I've been getting the above DHCP errors occuring in the event log, all of which have the same description:

The DHCP service encountered the following error while cleaning  up the database:
An error occurred while accessing the DHCP database. Look at the
DHCP server event log for more information on this error.

I have checked the A/V and auto-protect and scheduled scans exclude the DHCP folder in system32.

Upon checking, the time of the above event log occurances matches this messages in the DHCP log files:

14:26:26,Database Cleanup Begin,,,,

Also in the DHCP folder is j50.chk (recovered fragments file) which makes me wonder is something is corupting the DHCP database?

Any advice greatly appreciated.
