As per Microsoft (Sorry again but the PC is off and the Mac does
not wrap URLS correctly on this site so you will need to copy the
2 line URL):

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-
us/wcetcpip/html/cmconnon-configurableparameters.asp

"The following values are created and used internally by the
TCP/IP components. They should never be modified using the
Registry Editor. They are listed here for reference only. These
entries are located under the
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\<Adapter Name>\Parms\Tcpip
subkey."

Again, DHCP is a broadcast Request. It can not be locked.

Razz2 is right. Just because you found a key in the registry that displays the current DHCP server does not mean that you will be able to "lock" it through the registry.

Even though you rejected my answer doesn't make it any less true.
