If you are using Vista you should have the "Snipping Tool"(which to my mind is very good)to crop the screen shot.

Press Prt Scr, then paste into Paint. Press F11 first to hide toolbars and taskbar.

If you have Vista, use Snipping Tool.

The popular free picture viewer, Irfanview, has a simple screen capture tool. You can capture whole desktop, foreground window etc.

Or ALT & PRT SCR to copy the front window only (not the entire desktop).
