Stop DNS Requests Routing Through WS2012e

You may be aware that there is a registry hack to stop WS2012e setting up its own Active Directory domain which stops client computers from automatically being added to that domain, but performing the hack can lead to the WSE Connector software altering the network settings on the client computer routeing all DNS requests through the WSE server. Manually changing the DNS settings back to their defaults works for a while, but would reset the DNS setting back to the WSE machine a short time later.

This is caused by the Windows Server LAN Configuration service on the client computer. Disabling this service prevents the DNS settings from being altered to point to the WSE server and luckily for us, there is a fix for this too.
