Fire up whatever software (Example POWER DVD, The Core Media Player, VideoLan) you use to wach DVDs and click on the HELP file
Except for Video Lan, it does not have a help file (But then you get what you pay for and Video Lan is $0.00 your choice of currency)

This is from the POWER DVD XP help file (even if I'm running win-98)
During playback, simply click the Capture button to capture any video content as a still image.
To be more precise, you may pause the scene, play in slow motion, or step frame and then capture.
