Tools, Gadgets, and Widgets- Screen Capture

PrtScr is a free screen capture utility. Don't be fooled by its sweet chibi logo. The program has some nice features. Not only can you capture the entire screen, but you can choose which portion of the screen you want. You can capture a rectangular section of the screen, or you can freehand your selection. You can save the image file (.jpg, .png or .bmp) directly to your desktop, or you can specify a folder. You can also show your mouse pointer in the area you are saving. A handy feature if you're trying to show someone what to do (click here).  The program works with XP and Vista though I had no problems on Window 7 (Vista by another name (-;  )
