Yes...there is a Timer control in the Toolbox (the "Components" section by default).  Drop one on your form and set the Interval() property to 120,000.  Be sure to set the Enabled() property to true so it fires.  Now double click the "timer1" icon below your form to get the method stub (place your color changing code in there):
private void timer1_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {

        }

Thank you so much. If I want to do try-catch-finally, what kind of exceptions should I get for this timer?

I don't understand the question...if you have a Try/Catch then the exceptions would be caught by the Catch block.  The timer won't care.  =)
