You have to use a program that can access the overlay memory buffer.

Snagit or the like.

Other than that, if you have a second machine you can remote into the first one from, pause the avi where you want to capture it, remote in, then capture a screenshot of the remote control app inlcuding the avi picture.

Screenshots in WMP:
Tools--> Options--> Performance--> Advanced
Uncheck both instances of "Use Overlays"

Done.

I believe an alternate way would be to disable any video hardware acceleration from device manager...

VirtualDub will let you get a specific frame fairly easily.
