The easy method would be from your backup. Did you enable the built in backup and your own backups? Simply stop the DHCP service. Delete all files from your DHCP directory (by default this is C:\Windows\System32\dhcp). Restart the DHCP service, import the backup. Easiest method to import and backup a DHCP config if using netsh.

I'm assuming you don't have a backup then?

You could try using jetpack to do some database maintenance. Before doing anything take a copy of the existing files (stop DHCP service and copy them to another location).

net stop dhcp
jetpack dhcp.mdb temp.mdb
net start dhcp

See how that goes.
