Maybe this is too simple and isn't what you need, but when I want to create a .pdf I
1. write the document in Word (or any other program)
2. I go to File>Print (as though I'm going to print the document)
3. My next screen has a choice to "save to .pdf format" which you can do instead of printing
I save photos like this, Word documents, whatever. I have a Mac, but I showed someone else how to do it in their Windows computer, and it worked for them too. Basically, you just go to the print screen, and instead of printing, you save to .pdf.
If your computer won't do this, just copy the document to another computer that will. Then transfer (email or jumpdrive) the document back to your computer.
Hope this helps.
Keeping the win at my back!
