Topic: component to convert Word to PDF?

I am looking for a software component that will allow me to convert a MS Word doc file to PDF from within my application.
I'm using VB.NET and I'm currently doing the conversion sucessfully by firing up the Word object model in the app and using the distiller to "print" to a file.
This works fine, but can be slow.
I'm wondering if anyone knows of a software component callable from within a VB.NET app that will do this conversion for me without using Word/Distiller directly. I've looked around, but what I've seen is any number of converter applications which do way more than I need. I'm not interested in any fancy editting capabilities, or interactive or batch converters, so what I've seen so far is way overkill for my needs.
What I'd like is a component that I can use in my code and tell it, "convert this doc file over here to a PDF file and put it over there". That's it.
Freeware is good, but I'm quite willing to pay for something if it does what I need without superfluous frills.
