Windows 7 Freeware for reading and printing PDF files

I, like many other people, think that Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat X Pro have become extreme bloatware for the occasional home user of PDF files.

All I want is something to read PDF files and print PDF files from Microsoft Word and Excel. I don't need extras like form filling, commenting tools, digital signatures, online file sharing and the like.

I've tried a few freeware programs over the past year or so and am currently using a combination of PDF Xchange Viewer for reading PDF files and doPDF 7 for printing PDF files.

Anyone have any other suggestions for a freeware program / combination of freeware programs for reading / writing PDF files with Windows 7 x64?
