MS paint issue

I keep using paint in order to watch some CCNP & CCSP videos on Windows Media, and it seems as though whenever I do print screen on a video and paste it to paint, the image is not captured properly.  I keep getting a blank black page.

How can I make sure that what I PRINT SCREENED will be captured properly?  Lastly, Is there another tool I can use for this that might be better for this type of capture?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In the Windows Media Player, go Tools > Options > Performance tab > Advanced button > untick "Use Overlays" > OK

Now you can capture screenshots from movies.
