Not really got a clue but have you tried the snipping tool under accessories.
And there is one of the keys on the keyboard that takes a screenshot but cannot remember which one.
I did have a go at it once but failed miserably and now its a past memory and past my bedtime.

The problem you describe has been the case from, I think, Win 98, third-party software was needed to grab shots from games and some other things if I remember correctly. Snagit used to be a good app to overcome the problem, although I haven't used it in years. I've never used Fraps, so can't help you there, isn't there a help file with it?
