Do you want to use pdftex, or pdflatex? If you want to use the latter,
you should select it from the drop down list in the toolbar. If that
works, you can make the change permanent in Edit > Preferences... >

Otherwise, this sounds like a MiKTeX problem (i.e., miktex-pdftex.exe
doesn't work), in which case there's not much you can change in TeXworks.
For testing purposes, I'd recommend running miktex-pdftex (or
miktex-pdflatex) from the command line and see if that works. If not,
MiKTeX is probably not installed (or configured) correctly. I'd try to
update the format database (presumably from the MiKTeX administrative
tool), but this is really a question better followed up on on a MiKTeX
related mailing list.
