do any of the other screenshot key commands work? have you tested an other user account, rebooted or used disc utility to repair permissions?

try this:

System Prefs ~> Keyboard & Mouse ~> Keyboard shortcuts ~> Restore to Default.

Hi,

I have not updated my machine or anything
Firstly I would fully update as it is the best and protective way to run OS X.
Secondly I would follow SD's advice and repair permissions, you may have to run it two or three times. Please post back results.

Do a "Get Info" on your Desktop & make sure you have Read & Write privileges in the "Sharing & Permissions" section at the bottom
