Windows SharePoint Services Timer Service- Unable to start the Timer Service- Showed error -Pathto the executable not found.

There was a problem with Farm Backup and I checked All WSS Services are running or not. “Windows SharePoint Timer Service” was not running , then I start manually and it throws this error.
“Could not start the Windows SharePoint Services Timer Service on Local Computer. Error 3:The System cannot find the path specified”.

Then I checked that “Path to executable” Path was blank. How to set to “C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\BIN\OWSTIMER.EXE”

We can do the same thing with Registry Edit.
Got to Start -> Run -> type “regedit”, it opens Registry Editor

You can see these screens.

    Go to SPTimerV3 and check the “ImagePath” Property value and set with “C:\Program Files\Common    Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\BIN\OWSTIMER.EXE”
Now restart the service , it runs!!!
