    There are many of them. The one I like is ScreenPrint32 (freeware). Here's the description:

    ScreenPrint32 allows you to print and/or capture to disk or clipboard, the full desktop, active window, predefined area, or user selected area of the screen. Add user defined headers and footers with date and time stamps etc, resize the printed image, convert to greyscale or negative image, fade or resize the image to reduce toner/ink usage, print by default to any available printer. It can be set up to be completely transparent to the end user.
    Capture a screen area and paste directly into your documents. Easily configured with user specific or global settings which are persistent after reboot.
    Images may be saved to a user selected folder in either GIF, BMP, JPG or PNG formats with user configurable file naming.

    I'm not sure why it's taking you a long time to process. I just tried a few and it takes at the most 1 second to save a jpg file. How long is it taking you?

    Well, I'm not sure why you need something faster than 1 second. Maybe for what you're doing you need to record a video of your desktop. If that's the case, try VidShot Capturer which will record a video of your desktop or a window.

    Try Camstudio: http://www.camstudio.org/

    It's free and captures the screen to video. You can then load the video into something like virtualdub http://www.virtualdub.org/ , also free, and output each frame as an image. Make sure to adjust the amount of frames that Camstudio captures because you'll end up with a lot of them if you don't.
