    According to my Downloads partition, I downloaded it from MS in 2009.
    It is < 1 MB in size.

    And it's free, even for commercial use.

    I have Office 2010 and I use PDF24 and I have been for several years now with no problems. It allows you to "print" documents, emails, spreadsheets, etc. (even websites) as .pdf files. Give it a try!

    Also, it is 100% free.

    Download and install the free OpenOffice application.

    It has an option to export to PDF.

    nitropdf is these days only a free trial.

    I have a really old version of Open Office, but it had save as PDF in there as well. So there are free PDF savers all over the net. You can also use Quicken's PDF printer - Just choose the document you wanna convert, and hit Print and choose the Quicken PDF Printer.
