Windows Snipping Tool works OK.. Also have used GreenShot, but always come back to JOCR. If you have an older version of Microsoft Office, JOCR will capture the text of a dialog or Windows Explorer for you. In my day-to-day work, I am always capturing screen prints and sending via e-mail. Keep in mind, you do not have to have Office 2003 or 2007 if you want to just do screen snips.
