Assign program to Print Screen key

How can I find out which program is using the Print Screen key?
In my current Windows XP when I push the Print Screen key the current screen is always printed directly to the default printer.
I want to use the SnagIt program to make screencopies on other printers or on disk.
But the 'print screen' key is already in use by another programs and I cannot find it.
Is there a location somewhere in teh registry or on an other place where XP is storing this information.

Goto control panel -> add remove software and check the list of software installed.

There should be software installed to change the default behaviour of the print screen button. One of such software I know is Gadwin PrintScreen.
