Today I ran PSI and Open SSL 1x (64bit) v. 1.0.0j is vulnerable and should be updated to 1.0.0t. I found out that the two .dll files were installed on may 10th 2012, about 3 months after I bought this pc. Tried to figure out what it is and if it's essential for my pc but don't understand the documentation I found. Can anybody tell me more about the function and if it's essential for my pc?

Hi Maurice, Thanks for your help. I contacted OpenSSSL and they told me that the software isn't necessary for Windows but it's possible that other softwaremakers use it and they don't know which. Therefore I decided to uninstall it.
