the Net Logon service would always turn off when i reboted the server. But manually i can just turn it on. so i did the link bellow:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Win2000/Q_21107102.html?query=LanmanServer+LanmanWorkstation+DNS&clearTAFilter=true

Then the following morning some of the GP are not working example I have a backround that is loaded by a GP but now everyone has the windows default. But they cant change it. The 2 policys are in 2 diffrent policy and everything was working fine until i try to fix the netlog service.

When I modifyed the register on the DC it already the LanmanWorkstation and
LanmanServer followed by some spaces and a charecter (dont remeber witch one). All i did was delete the spaces and the charecter.

and there is no erros on the event logs. So I dont have any idea where to look

Do you have a recent system state back-up? or can you just undo the registry changes to mirror how they were? It is pretty normal in a one domain controller environment for there to be alot of errors in the event viewer after a reboot, this is unavoidable and is due to the fact that no other domain based services are available during the start up process of that machine. Having to manually start netlogon after every reboot would be a pain, but  less of a pain than you have now. If you go to the properties of the service, and click on the recovery tab, you may be able to get the service to start itself back up by configuring it to restart the service after every failure.
