You see, I want to earn some money by creating lessons on which explains how to use windows XP and office 2003.

I'm seen a bunch of articles online with Screen Shots and videos about Windows and office so I don't think it's against the law.
I'm not a lawer though, so I'm not sure.

Edit:
I just checked out the page at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S.....ght_issues and it says using Screen Shots is legal "under the principle of fair use in the U.S or fair dealing and similar laws in other countries."
