Windows Vista and 7 have a great, easy to use image snipping tool, Snipping Tool. No such included tool comes with Windows XP, or earlier Windows. I just found and tried a good (so far) alternative, tried on Windows XP: FastStone Capture, which comes in a portable form in a zip file.
(Their site pages)

The pages there shows FSCapture as shareware with a fee, but the find through internet search was for freeware snipping, and the documentation that comes with the package does not specifically indicate that it's either commercialware or freeware.
