    I am looking for a program that will record everything in the screen while I play Guild Wars. Is there a good and reliable program that can do this for Windows?

    How about hitting the print screen button. or are you wanting to capture multiple screen images? In vista there is the Snipping Tool. That works pretty good.

    Windows Media Encoder will capture video. But I think you will need a really fast pc to do this.

    SnagIt. Not sure how well it will work while you are playing a game though. You will probably notice a performance hit in your games with any software that has to do this.

    Most people use Fraps for game recording. It is also the #1 choice for FPS monitoring.
