Windows 7: Black screenshots in games

Black screenshots in games

When I take a screenshot with print screen, in a game, and then minimize to open up paint and to paste, I get a screenshot of my Desktop, instead of my game.

Goolging around told me to disable desktop composition, so I did that, and now when I print screen, I get just black:

Why? I never had this problem in Vista or XP.

Use the in game screen shot button not "Print Screen".
