for free!

am a bit wary of downloading random stuff from the internet and possibly making my work laptop explode, so any recommendations would be great

latest release of microsoft office does this I think.

works a treat - appears as a new printer.. print to cutepdf, it asks you for a filename and you're away. Means you can make a pdf from anything you can print.

perhaps will try again

OpenOffice is very good and I believe from a trusted source.

Get yourself a gmail account (go to and open an account, it's like hotmail or yahoo) but also has a feature called Google Documents where you can upload documents (such as word files) and convert them to pdfs.
