You can use Snipping Tool to capture a screen shot, or snip, of any object on your screen, and then annotate, save, or share the image.
Simply use a mouse or tablet pen to capture any of the following types of snips:
Free-form Snip. Draw an irregular line, such as a circle or a triangle, around an object.
Rectangular Snip. Draw a precise line by dragging the cursor around an object to form a rectangle.
Window Snip. Select a window, such as a browser window or dialog box, that you want to capture.
Full-screen Snip. Capture the entire screen when you select this type of snip.
After you capture a snip, it's automatically copied to the mark-up window, where you can annotate, save, or share the snip.

What about Greenshot?
It lacks JPG quality settings and uses something around 80... I would use 97 if I can, so I end up using PNG... or converting later.
Other that that, the best simple tool for the job.
Preinstalled on windows and easy to use
So easy to use. Very clean interface and does it's job without fail. Can quickly take a screenshot whenever I want.
I keep coming back to this one - it's blindingly simple, convenient, and just...there. This and the sticky notes are my favorite features of Win7 - things that should have been there for ages, just as part of the OS.
That said...it really should have TEXT BOX annotations as well as lines and highlights.
