I haven't use any of these, but I heard good comments about Faststone, awhile back.

Camtasia Studio , also from Techsmith is a great tool and a bit more robust than SnagIt is. Very popular and great results. They also offer a free trial.

Your print screen sysrq key on your keyboard can let you capture still screen shots.

An hour?
Are you playing some video on your computer for that hour?

Record video from a webcam, recording device or screen

Record your computer screen
a. Capture video directly to your hard drive
b. Screen capture software records the entire screen, a single window, or any selected.
c. Record video alone or video and audio simultaneously.

Get it Free.
