I am not a fan of PDF format myself (I usually quickly convert it to DJVU), but I have seen over this forum that people are looking for a pdf printer (and also some users have mentioned this app under different posts in response to individual inquiries), so I thought some people are just looking for this very thing and they might benefit from this. Bullzip PDF Printer is a freeware virtual printer that can be used for conversion of printable files to pdf format:
The Bullzip PDF Printer works as a Microsoft Windows printer and allows you to write PDF documents from virtually any Microsoft Windows application.

Here's another one --- that will actually output even more formats, and has the additional benefit of being open source.
