You may want to take a look at Keis Air if that is compatable with your phone, it is about the best I have seen for files management. You can definately take screen shots with apps through. For example cm9 ROM android some GB ROMs have it built in through hitting the power button, or MIUI has it through the toggle window on the notification bar.
Thank you for your response and I should probably take a look at installing a custom ROM.

I think I probably wasn't clear about what I'm looking for. I'm not really trying to manage my phone from my PC, but just browse and edit some of the database files in the /data folders, similar to the way the Android app "Root Explorer" does it. It's too difficult doing it on the phone.

What I liked about the screenshots that I took with Android Commander was being able to do it directly on the PC so I didn't have to transfer them from my phone. Also they were very clear. I tried some of the screenshot apps, and they all involved shaking the phone to activate and it was hard to get decent screenshots of screens that have animations.
