Skyrim Screenshot Problem

Started playing Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and IT.IS.AWESOME. During my game play I encountered a beautiful scenery with aurora borealis and I just must have it. But to my dismay, my screenshot doesn't work!!!!!!!!!! Here is my fix based on a few other solutions (which didn't show me the fix directly but instead pinpointed me into the right direction).

Follow instructions base on picture given:

1.Well, there's only one actually XD. Just type the line as shown in the red box in Skyrim.ini which can be found in your Documents folder. The screenshots will be placed in your designated game folder.

TIP: If you're wondering how to remove the bits of user interface like compass, cursor,health bar,etc which are known as HUD(Heads-Up Display) just go to Options>Display and you'll fine HUD opacity. Just reduce it to lowest and done.

Now let me upload the one I got an...WTF?
On further research I found it was a bug with the in-game screen capture. I don't think there's a fix for this so I decided to use FRAPS instead. FRAPS does the trick fantastically. I can't even see the effect of lag when I screen capture using FRAPS. FRAPS even offer to do a video capture but it's very short for the FREE version. At least I got what I wanted :  :)

 I got these at Valtheim Towers. Just look them up through Google if you want to find it.
That is all.

My Choice of Malware Protection

As a Windows user for a long time now(but not in the near future) I can say I have good experience with malware programmes that I can share. Here's my top 3 picks for FREE antimalware programmes:

1st: avast! Antivirus
2nd:Microsoft Security Essentials(MSE)
3rd:Avira Antivirus

The main reason I choose these would be that they're all FREE, trusted and popular choices. My choices are also based on statistics and results from . avast! is my number ONE cause it has great scores for protection, repair and usability from as I've noted the aforementioned site, minimal ads(that is it doesn't get it the way) and so far no fake-positives(except for a couple of files from my Left 4 Dead 2 game). There' was only a slight problem with it, that is the actual FREE-ness of it. You actually have to register to get it lasting significantly long. I meant significantly because it's not permanent but very very very^3563579 long. Take a loong at the screenshot below:

As you can see I insert a registration code which IS NOT mine. You want it? Here it is: :D

MSE is second and about as good as avast! in my opinion. Although according to results from Av-Test, it's worst compared to avast!. But it's still a good choice:Absolutely no ads, user-friendly interface and settings and is also very-light on resources.

Avira Antivirus is third due to irritating ads when updating and annoying was of handling detected baddies. Once detected Avira Antivirus initiates a scan of your system with is difficult to cancel. It then pops up a window for you to decide what to do with the infected file(or so it says). I had bad experience with Avira Antivirus detecting false-positives mostly cracks and keygens and the like. It also feels a little heavier then the top 2.

In terms of protection, weelll, I can't really say much cause I know how to prevent these or at least most of these problems. They sure can't protect you from everything but I'm sure that these will prevent you computers from having to go to the shop(that much often).
