Can I convert/save a password-protected .ppt file as a .pdf?

I have a user that has a password-protected .ppt file that came from an outside source.  He'd like to convert it to a .pdf  Can't figure it out! - Is there a [FREE!] way that anyone knows of that I can do this for him?  The .pdf does NOT need to be password-protected.  Thanks!

Hi bds1959,

You need to install a free PDF writer on your computer. I use:

Once you've installed the free software, just open the PowerPoint file and select PRINT. In the Print dialog box select CutePDF Writer and it will ask you were to save your new PDF document.

WOW!!!  TOO EASY!!!  :)  Didn't even think of that!!!  DUH!!!  Tried printing as an Adobe Acrobat file, but since that didn't work I didn't even think about trying one of the freebies.  Used CutePDF as suggested - I also like PrimoPDF - that one will append files.  THANK YOU!!!
