✔ Best Answer
Try PDF Creator. Sets itself up as a printer and any document you can print can be made into a PDF:

It may be that you have it in your word processor already.

Openoffice can save a doc to a pdf.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

I use PrimoPDF, a free application that installs a print driver on the computer. When you want to save as a PDF, go to print the document and select PrimoPDF. After a moment, a window will popup for various settings along with the file name and save location.

Be AWARE,

I was originally going to download this, before I did so, something told me to look at tips below. (this was a general google search) tips said - many people had recently got a virus from this. Not saying there is anything wrong with the program, some B....D corrupted it. Thank god I asked on here first.

What you're talking about is called OpenCandy. It's falsely identified as a virus. Like many free programs, PrimoPDF also includes the option to install an additional program. Unlike most others, PrimoPDF's supplement program installation is opt-in instead of opt-out. So, if you rush through the installation, you still won't install the supplement program: Microsoft's Bing Toolbar. This information is mentioned in that tutorial I posted.
You can find more information about PrimoPDF's partnership with OpenCandy here:
http://www.primopdf.com/opencandy.aspx

Once PrimoPDF is installed, you're done with OpenCandy. I've seen Avira and Microsoft Security Essentials identify the PrimoPDF setup file as malware. Even though it is by definition because it bundles software together, it's not the type of malware that causes problems with your computer. As mentioned, the supplement program is opt-in not opt-out, so you'll only install it if you explicitly say so.

It's unfortunate that uninformed people are exaggerating things to make this awesome program sound malicious, but now you're better informed. That's the reason I like installation tutorials like that, so you know exactly how the setup process will work and can avoid installing supplement programs.
