DHCP service keeps stopping

When I start the DHCP service it stops within a few seconds.  I get this error in the event log.  I have tried removing all files from c:\windows\system32\dhcp and these are recreated when start service but then the service stops

anything else on the network advertising itself as a dhcp server?
do you see any event id 1053 in the system log?

No I checked that first and no event 1053  Oddly enough after 3 hours of trying to get this working it is now working.  The only thing I did was uninstall an online backup we don't use any more.  I had also removed all files from the system32\dhcp folder then started the service.  It recreated the files but then stopped.  So I deleted them all again and put the original ones back and now it is working and has been for about 20 minutes
