    Greenshot is a free and open source screen capture application for Windows users. While Windows has the Snipping Tool included, which offers more flexibility than just using the Print Screen key on your keyboard, it is not as fully featured a screen capture application as Greenshot.

    Greenshot makes it very easy to take a screen capture and then draw and annotate upon it without having to open another application.

    Highlights of Greenshot

    Greenshot is a very intuitive screen capture application with some very useful features.

    Free to download and use, even in commercial environments
    Can easily remove the mouse pointer from a screen capture
    Integrates automatically with the Print Screen key
    Capture a specific area of the screen with option to crop the shot before saving
    Easily add rectangles, ellipses, lines and arrows in different colors and weights
    Add text in different fonts and sizes
    Email screen captures to friends or colleagues
    Annotations remain fully editable until the screen capture has been closed
    Obfuscate parts of the screen capture

  23. Your RAM is your problem buddy, not enough.

    Cyberlink= PowerDVD could be disabled from start up.

    if i upgrade to 4gb ddr2 ,then will it be ok?
  25. groovemonitor as well.

    Start>Run>type in MSCONFIG>Startup tab - uncheck any reference to "groovemonitor" then reboot
  26. BSNL said:

    Yes, it will run smoother.
  27. it will be better, 40% is normal for a 2GB machine, windows will push stuff to swap file as it needs to.
  28. BTW, post your specs.

    CPU:
    RAM: with link please.
    Motherboard:
    GPU:
    PSU:
    HDD: /SSD
    OS type + version

    do you want to know my specs?
  32. BSNL said:

    Well, what settings?

    Win7 is great in managing it by itself. If u would have 16GB RAM, than u can play with priority with right programs and right settings.

    But u need also strong CPU, better yet with multi-threading.

    But leave it alone. Its fine as is.

    But to disable some start up services, yes.

    Yes, its from office and it will start if its needed.

    Good, sometimes they insert 1+1 and u need to throw 1 out if u want more RAM.

    Its good in this case.
