Or if you are using Acrobat 7, simply open the file, click on File->Save As and select the file type to be .doc.
Then save the file, and you're done.

It loses a lot of formatting using that technique.

With the PDF document open in Acrobat 7 Standard or Professional, choose File > Save As. In the Save As dialog box, choose Microsoft Word Document from the Format (Mac) or Type (Windows) pop-up menu. Then simply click the Save button, and open the document in Word for editing.

To check or change the settings that Acrobat uses to convert PDF content to Word format, open Preferences (choose Acrobat > Preferences on the Mac or Edit > Preferences in Windows) and choose Convert From PDF from the list of Categories on the left side of the dialog box. Then choose Microsoft Word Document from the Converting From PDF scrollable list. The window at right shows you how Acrobat will handle the conversion, including whether it will include comments, preserve columns and downsample images. To change these settings, click the Edit Settings button. (Alternatively, you can change these settings when you convert any given document by clicking the Settings button in the Save As dialog box.)

The conversion may not be perfect, depending on factors such as the complexity of the layout, and whether you have the document's fonts on your system. For simple business documents, Acrobat's Save As command does a decent job of converting to Word.

Are you aware that you can export the text from any PDF right in the Adobe PDF viewer?  You dont need any add on program, or online program.  When you open the document, look for the square box icon, and hover over it, and you will see you can either export text or graphics.  Choose text, select all, and copy it to the clipboard, then paste into word.  Of course it will lose the formatting, that is the nature of PDF, it does not save the text in formatted form, unlike a wordprocessor.  The only formatting in PDF is the graphics, when you extract the text, it is always unformatted.  I tried over 20 programs to get the text out in formatted form, and you cannot do it.  Only the graphics is formatted, so if you want the layout, you will have to select graphics display in the square box I mentioned, and save as a graphics file.
