stunnel is a program to create Secure TUNNELs for some applications that have no encryption themselves (telnet or ftp for example) to communicate across a network with encryption. It's free, so some hardware/software vendors use it rather than develop an encryption algorythm themselves. It is not dangerous in any way, and is likely necessary for something installed to encrypt communication. (Provided of course it is the legitimate 'stunnel' exe, but I've never heard of this exe being hijacked, so it almost certainly is.)

Best practices for resolving stunnel-4 issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with stunnel-4. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
