JOCR is pretty good!

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.
