I'll tell you, there's no free download for this. I wanted to this a while back and searched hi and lo. Nothing free.
As for the error messages, you need to run a few different malware programs. Each one finds different things. Or better yet, upgrade to Win7, if you can. It'll be a clean install from XP, but this is probably the best way to do it, in your case. Just backup important stuff first. I don't think there's any other way to get rid of those error messages.

It's not free. It's a free trial and you're limited to what you can do.

I would also be wary of submitting any sensitive documents to a website that saves the info to a file that you have to download.

Look for OCR (Optical Character Recognition). It won't copy the PDF's formats, graphics & photos, but it will do a decent job on the text. You can use the Print Screen key to copy graphics and photos to the clipboard, where they can be pasted into Word.
