A video/image editing request, and some quizzage

Does any Windows user know how to take screencaps out of AVI videos that don't alias to the video player?

If I use Alt-PrtScr in Windows Media Player, then paste into Microsoft Paint, the BMP or PNG file (a) is several tens of pixels displaced; (b) changes with what is currently showing in the Media Player window, so that if I seek to a different frame, the image changes, even if saved to disk. I have not experimented with Windows Movie Maker or Adobe Premiere to see whether they have this problem. Adobe ImageReady and Macromedia Fireworks MX both do.

I Am Maui
You love life and you're determined to live to the fullest. You use your bag of tricks to protect those you care about and to teach those who mess with you and yours a lesson, but you're not unreasonable. You're a tinkerer and an inventor, you love to build stuff. You enjoy hanging out with good friends or being out in nature. Like the Hawaiian Trickster Maui, your amiable nature fools those who think you're an easy target. You're not.

I Am Robin Goodfellow
You are that merrie wanderer of the night - outgoing and playful. Like Robin Goodfellow you enjoy a great joke, even when the joke's on you. You're the life of the party - you have a happy disposition and you like to laugh and have a good time. You're mischevious and you enjoy pulling someone's leg, but your jokes are generally good-natured and well meant (unless of course you're dealing with some fool mortal). When it comes right down to it, you'll do what you can to help out a friend.
