DHCP Services stop within 10 seconds of starting

Over the last 3 weeks DHCP services in Windows SBS 2008 have stopped working properly , even after a reboot DHCP services stop within 5 minutes.

Even when you start the DHCP services on the SBS 2008 , they are stopped automatically for some strange reason.
We are using a netgear Router with a static IP address. (DHCP is disabled on the Netgear Router). This problem suddenly started 3 weeks ago.
The event Log shows the following:

The DHCP service has detected that it is running on a DC and has no credentials configured for use with Dynamic DNS registrations initiated by the DHCP service.   This is not a recommended security configuration.  Credentials for Dynamic DNS registrations may be configured using the command line "netsh dhcp server set dnscredentials" or via the DHCP Administrative tool.

Can anyone help with a step by step guide on completing the above ?
