FYI. Video screen capture by Camstudio is free and open source. It is very good.

What you require is I believe available in Faststone Capture (and others) which is available as freeware for personal use and is also available as a portable application. (does not write to registry etc.)
A+ Freeware - Multimedia & Design - FastStone Capture 5.3 (last freeware version)

It captures rectangular/active screen or area, freehand area and also captures a scrolling screen, I have used it many times - an good example would be to capture a lengthy tutorial to use offline. A great find by Barman58

Hello davehc the version I posted 1n post#16 is older version 5.3 originally posted by Barman58 some time ago, I just retested the validity of the link by uninstalling/reinstalling FS Capture & it still works and is free - see below

Home (shareware) = new version but the 2 links below that that contain 5.3 are the free versions
