I am having an issue with a computer of mine. It is randomly changing from a static IP to a DHCP one, Problem is that it's my media server. So although i can fix it fairly easily, It is annoying. it also happens for no particular reason, I can reboot 10 times and it'll stay the same, but after a day or two or three even (seems random) it just flops back. i've uninstalled and reinstalled the driver for it and got nothin. Any ideas?

Already scanned with Malware Bytes and it said i was golden

When you notice that your pc has changed to DHCP, does it appear as if it may have rebooted since the last time you worked on it? Have you checked the event logs to see if there is any indication of what may be happening?
