Script to do a Screen Capture and E-mail

Looking for some ideas or suggestions for a script to do a screen capture and some basic system info(OS, MEM, CPU, IP, Computer Name) and e-mail it off to a specified e-mail address.  Any thoughts or suggestions?  If system info is not doable, then the screen capture to e-mail is the major part.  One thing it needs to open to the message screen so they can explain there problem before it is sent.

Ok Word and Outlook will be required to install on the client computer to make the below listed vbscript (.vbs) run
strScreenshot = "D:\Screenshot.doc"
strTo = ""

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & "." & "\root\cimv2")

Set objWordBasic = CreateObject("Word.Basic")
objWordBasic.SendKeys "{prtsc}"
objWordBasic.AppClose "Microsoft Word"
Set objWordBasic = Nothing
'WScript.Sleep 2000

Set objWord = CreateObject("Word.Application") 
objWord.Visible = True 

Set objSelection = objWord.Selection

'Get computername
Set objNet = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")
objSelection.TypeText "Computername:" &objNet.ComputerName &vbNewLine

'Get OS version
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_OperatingSystem")
For Each objItem in colItems
	objSelection.TypeText "OS:" &objItem.Caption &vbNewLine

'Get IP Address
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("select * from Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration where IPEnabled=TRUE")
For Each objItem In colItems
	If Not IsNull(objItem.IPAddress) Then
		For i=LBound(objItem.IPAddress) To UBound(objItem.IPAddress)
			objSelection.TypeText "IP:" &objItem.IPAddress(i) &vbNewLine
	End If

'Get memory
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery ("Select * from Win32_ComputerSystem")

	objSelection.TypeText "RAM:" &objItem.TotalPhysicalMemory /1024 /1024 /1000 &" MB" &vbNewLine

'Get CPU
Set  colItems  =  objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from  Win32_Processor")

objWord.ActiveDocument.SaveAs strScreenshot,6 
Set objWord = Nothing 

'Open Mail with attachment

objShell.Run "Outlook.exe /m " &strTo &" /a " &chr(34) &strScreenshot &chr34 ,1,False

Install AutoIT, and compile this:
#include <ScreenCapture.au3>
Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & 'systeminfo.exe > systemInfo.txt', "", @SW_HIDE)

I suggest you use this in conjunction with the solution above. Then you'll have a smaller screenshot file and much more system information. (Open a command prompt and type 'systeminfo' to see what information you'll get.)
