Submission + - PDFCreator: malware and alternatives (pdfforge.org)

An anonymous reader writes: Recently some friends reported me that they had malware installed by pdfforge.org PDFCreator. At first I didn't believe them, but even the official forum confirms it. Although the authors of the software say the installation asks for permission, I cannot recommend this kind of software to anyone. Now I'm looking for alternatives. Which free software would you recommend? What do you think of the tactic of using toolbars, spyware and other suspicious extras coupled with open-source software installations?
