Sorry, just a list.

1. CutePDF
2. PDF995
3. Open Office (just open the .DOC and export it to PDF)

All free too. Not even a trial.

There are other companies offering this service as well.

I recommend cutePDF.

It comes up as a printer option, you click print, then give it a name and location - job done. It's free too.
