If you've got VLC, open it up and use Video -> Snapshot.
If you're interested, the reason why you can't use printscreen is because windows XP and earlier have a somewhat archaic way of doing video acceleration - the OS actually prints a big box of color (it's a darkish purple), and then the video card replaces anywhere on the screen with the video. So using print-screen just copies the darkish purple box. This is also why sometimes if you've got a video running in the background, you see it bleed through stuff in the foreground. (This is probably only half-correct, but meh - it's accurate enough.)
