    What are you trying to take a screen shot of? There is software out there that can do all kinds of screen shots or you can just hit Print Screen and paste it into MSPAINT.

    For games you can use FRAPS or you can use the internal screen shot function built into some game.

    SnagIt is a great capture program. But just hit Print Screen, which copies to the clipboard, paste and edit if necessary.
