Does Windows 2008 R2 & IIS that comes with it
use OpenSSL at all?

Or generally people will buy certs & use 3rd party
SSL ?

Openssl is a linux machanism. Windows doesnt use it.

@Patricksr1972: you mean it's not installed by default.

No one is preventing you from installing and using OpenSSL in a Windows environment.

If you are talking about issues with the heartbleed bug, Microsoft servers are generally good because MS uses it's own.  If you use a panel like plesk, that does use open ssl but I know at least plesk 11.5 for windows is does not use the affected version of OpenSSL.

Indeed. IIS uses SChannel, as does all commercial Microsoft software.

Many third party products use the ssl dlls, but most are still using 1.0 or earlier, use of the "leading edge" version is the exception not the rule.

search windows for libeay32.dll

if the properties of the file say it isn't running 1.0.1, then its not an issue - 1.0.0 and earlier is fine.  If it is there, and is running 1.0.1, then you will need to identify what code uses it.
