You could use PDF Creator (http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator/)

a) download PDF Creator: http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator/
b) install it
c) set PDF Creator as your default printer
   1) Open Printers and Faxes
   2) Right-click the printer you want to use as the default printer, and then click Set as Default Printer.

d) go inside the folder where the files that need to be converted are
e) select all the files you want to convert to PDF
f) right click on them and choose print

hope this helps
