Freeware PDF converter

Can anyone recommend one that's easy to use and genuine free ware, rather than a come on with severe limitations to fet you to buy?
Use would be very light as would be used for attachments to forum posts mainly.
No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

@ * NjalThat was one I looked at, but it came up with 5 items immediately and for some reason (?my stupidity?) I could not work out how to get the word item, I wanted converting, done.

PDF Creator is pretty good:
http://www.pdfforge.org/products/pdfcreator
It's free, about 15MB to download and installs as a printer, so you can use it from any application that allows printing.
