Description:
The SharePoint 2010 Timer service terminated with
service-specific error 2147500037 (0x80004005).

Both errors appeared every 3 minutes.

Cause

Well in our particular case a developer asked me to change the owstimer.exe.config file (and restart the timer service) to configure a specific timer job.

Solution

In this case, obvious, I think. Replacing the owstimer.exe.config file to its originally settings, which are:

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″ ?>
<configuration>
<runtime>
</runtime>
</configuration>

Other causes/solutions:

When I searched the internet for solutions I also found this post by Yorick here. Problem was a missing GUID named folder and the solution recreating that folder. Check his blogpost if my solution did not solve anything for you.
