Printing to a PDF file -- no longer possible

I installed Adobe Professional 6.0 a while ago on my computer.  Now when I try to print to a PDF file I only get the option for a Microsoft Office Document Image Writer.  I have tried to install/repair in Adobe Professional (and detect/repair while in the program) and it wants the disc or AcorPro.msi... I no longer have these discs.  Is there a way to repair the Adobe PDF printer without this file?  

P.S. AcroTray is showing up with a big yellow exclamation point on it in the programs files/Distiller directory

If it is Office 2007, use this:

It is a add-on to Save as PDF and take Adobe Professional out of the loop for being a dependency for what you were doing before.

The Acrobat PDF printer was installed as printer.  The problem is NOT SPECIFIC to any program, Somehow the Acrobat Distiller or Acrotray is somehow disabled.

But isn't the PDF Printer just a sub-program to save a DOC to PDF.  Unfortunately I am not very familiar with Acrobat Distiller.

Does anyone out there know how to get the Acrobat PDF printer back up and running (without the Adobe Acrobat Professional 6.0  CD's)  Somehow it was mistakenly uninstalled...
