    Do this:

    1.) Right click on the desktop and choose "Properties" (WinXP) or "Change Screen Resolution" (Vista, 7)

    2.) Click on the "Settings" tab

    3.) Click on the "Advanced" button

    4.) Click on the "Troubleshoot" tab

    5.) Move the "Hardware Acceleration" slider all the way to the left ("None") and hit "OK" or "Apply".

    Now you can use the Print Screen button to capture the image. Once you are done, I recommend you move the slider back all the way to the right ("Full"), otherwise your video performance will take a huge hit.

    Power DVD also has a "capture" button that allows you to save the current frame.
