What is a good screen capture program?

I'm looking for a free screen capture program with the following requirements:

Free and not a trial version
Can record the screen at any time (not just in game like fraps)

Any good programs like this? I have windows 7 professional. Thanks.

More about what good screen capture program
  1. Snipping Tool is free with Windows.
  2. Microsoft's Snipping Tool comes already installed on Windows Vista and Windows 7.

    Capture full screen, active window, rectangular area, and freehand region after launching program. Output to file or email.

    No hotkeys, auto save, delayed capture, or auto-scroll. No printer output. Editor only allows highlighting and freehand line drawing.

    64 Bit version available
    Save resulting images as PNG, GIF, JPG, & MHT
  3. I'm sorry I mean a screen recorder, not just a screen shot
  4. My Screen Recorder is one of the best screen recording tools. Records your screen and audio from the speakers or your voice from the microphone - or both simultaneously. It's easy to use, and records directly to standard AVI or WMV format files. Perfect for tutorials and demos. Download here: http://www.deskshare.com/screen-recorder.aspx
  5. I have used two kinds of screen capture program. One is fraps (http://www.fraps.com/) another is camtasia(https://www.techsmith.com/video-editor.html). For recording gaming video i prefer the former one. Fraps seldom causes any fps drop during the game. And as for online video recording, i prefer the latter. But there is one troublesome issue of Camtasia. The output is .CAMREC that cannot be play on third-party players like Windows Media Player and vlc, you must convert it to MP4 or avi before using every time.
