If you have a Mac, Quicktime will do this (but without recording audio). Open Quicktime and select File>New Screen Recording.

Re: computer screen capture software

I use Adobe Captivate 6 .0 There's a little bit of a learning curve but definitely well worth it.

+1 for Camtasia. Very easy learning curve and to use.

Quicktime on the Mac is built-in and also does audio recording. You can choose audio inputs so external mic can be used. I use it often to record presentations. Even videos in presentations are recorded. The overall frame rate is a function of the resolution of the area you record and performance of your system.

I've been using Microsoft Expression Encoder. The free version has a 10 minute recording limit, then you have to hit record button again.

I use Telestream's ScreenFlow. Got it because I like their Episode conversion software.
Worth checking at least:

Screen Recording Software - Overview - Telestream ScreenFlow

There used to be a screen capture in EXCam browser or one of the associated apps.

Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 gives you the option to capture the cursor.
