[stunnel-users] Stunnel 5.55 on Win 10 x64 GUI Mode

Issue solved!

I went into Event Viewer and looked at the data related to the Stunnel 
GUI crashes.  In all cases,
there was reference to "faulting module name ASProxy64.dll".  After some 
research, I found that
this file is either used by or installed by my Astrill VPN software.  
After uninstalling Astrill's app,
the Stunnel GUI functioned normally.

Now I just have to figure out what to use for VPN.
