What operating system! And do you have Microsoft Office (I recall that can stuff up the clipboard)!

How can 3rd party programs be better and easier then pressing prntscrn!

You obviously haven't used one - Even the Windows 7 Snipping tool is better than just print screen, but Greenshot is the best free app I've used next to Snagit (which is not free). It lets you select the screen capture area (to pixel accuracy), includes the cursor in the snapshot which you can re-position or remove, options to add drop shadow, highlighting and annotations etc. and all the annotations including the cursor are layered so you can bring to front, and more. I use it often when producing professional quality user manuals. It replaces the print screen key, so its only just one click, without having to use Ctrl+PrtScn or Shift+PrtScn.

I had this problem also, now I have to use FN key with the PRTSC keys, the ALT key no longer seems to do it!
