Very most like microsoftpdf system.
Ninite is always reliable no spam no adware bundle malware for downloading common software
also, its my favorite way of printing out a PDF easily since it works anywhere that would normally work by printing
I intend to use this software using the official installer but sadly this software contains virus as scanned here by virustotal.com

This the most rated one on alternativeto but definitely the one I prefer. I just tried the install now and by default it suggest to add the ask toolbar and also to install extra software from other players.
Once the install is complete you can still not use it because you need to install a PDF converter. That's too much of a hassle and I ended up uninstalling it and going for doPDF7 which doesn't come with any extra unwanted so far.
My personal ranking of the 4 PDF-printers is:
Advantages of doPDF over Bullzip PDF PRINTER, CutePDF Writer and qvPDF
With one click you can make this folder to the standard folder where to store doPDF-files
Advantages of doPDF and Bullzip PDF PRINTER over CutePDF Writer and qvPDF
PROs & CONs of Bullzip PDF PRINTER (in difference to CutePDF Writer and qvPDF)
PRO: You can hook to open the target-folder with the new PDF-file after creating it
CON: the suggested filename has all words 2 times instead only one time. To delete it costs time
PROs & CONs of CutePDF
CON: Installation of Ask Toolbar is suggested, but can be hooked away
CON: Installation of Driver Updater is suggested, but can be declined by hooking it away
PROs & CONs of qvPDF
PRO: qvPDF is a PDF creator for Windows, but you can also merge & split pdf-documents.
CON: it is difficult to select the folder and name of the printed PDF-File
CON: No complete uninstalling with deleting all files and folders . In case of a reinstallation because of a printing problem, you have the problem again because the old settings are used again.
CON: I could not stop the printing of a document sent to the printer
You have to be careful when you install this application, as it continues to install crapware by default( Ask.com, McAfee ) unless you uncheck it at installation.
Once you get past that landmine, this application installs as a printer driver and integrates smoothly with other applications. I like the PDF printer model better than the ones where you say print to application, then it opens the application and from there you save as PDF. Too much work!
