    So this has not helped you. Then try FastStone Capture for Windows v 5.3 is still freeware. You will like it. (v5.4 onwards it has become shareware).

    1. My FastStone Capture says "registered to WHS" on the bottom right. But I have the last version for which I paid $20. If you have the free version which you can still get from here ( faststonecapture ), then the "unregistered" probably means that it is a version without a product key.
    2. Regarding the snipping tool: What does this mean:" while downloading a program that requires it"?

    i meant whenever i download a certain program or update and have to restart comp, thats how the snip tool becomes disabled -its really odd.

    FastStone Capture for Windows v 5.3 is still freeware and can be downloaded from The Portable Freeware Collection - FastStone Capture legally.

    If you downloaded FSC, it will be in the folder to which you downloaded it. Best is to place it into DOWNLOADS. From there you can send a shortcut of the .exe either to the desktop, Start menu or Quick Launch. I also put this shortcut into the Startup folder (type SHELL:STARTUP into the Start/search field, press Enter, drag the shortcut into the folder). Then you will have the icon (after restart) in the notification area. But be careful when you close FSC. Do not X out, but minimize. If you X out, the icon in the notification area will disappear until the next restart.

    Try this out - Window Clippings - High quality screen capture for Windows
    It was an excellent app till the time it was completely free, used to capture Aero as well as window shadows. But then the developer introduced a paid version and added a watermark in the free version. If you can get hold of the old version, nothing like it for screenshots.
