did you try to right-click on the stunnel icon in the systray and select "Exit"?

This is stunnel's way to output the help message (or other messages)
on windows.

If stunnel used stdio for messages, you would have seen the help
message in the command prompt window you entered "stunnel -help"
in. However, there isn't necessarily a command prompt window stunnel
is attached to. Imagine to invoke "stunnel -help" via [start]->[run].
