Screen capture utility for a USB "thumb drive."

I want to use a screen capture program that works from my USB "thumb drive."  Is there a product that will do this.  I have read that Snag It is a good program.  Will that work from a USB thumb drive?

SnagIt needs installing

As well as the suggestions above consider FastStone's Screen Capture Utility which doen't need to be installed & just runs from the file on your Thumb Drive. (http://www.faststone.org/FSCaptureDetail.htm)

Don't forget that the Print SCreen button on your keyboard will also work and Alt-PrtScr will capture the current active window to your clipboard.

O.K.  One additional question. I will increase the points.  Is there a capture utlity as described above that will automatically place the screen capture into a MS Word document without going throught a clipboard step?

FPS = Frame Per Second or First Person Shooter

AFAIK there has to be a clipboard step for Word.

FRAPS is great for specific captures such as ingame video for WoW etc but again will need to be installed on your PC

I tried the FastStone screen capture utility.  It works well from my thumb drive.

Alt-printscreen then paste works for me a lot of the time.. unfortunately it must go through the clipboard. FPS stands for frames per second.. (a major requirement for gamers in which the higher the better)

I tried alt-printscrn but I need to select small portions of a window to put into a word doc, not an entire active window.

Thanks.

Use Alt-PrtScr & then paste to either Paint or a graphics package like Irfanview and cut the section you want.
