My guess is the Wget or OpenSSL (probably OpenSSL) you have was compiled using 
Microsoft Visual C++, and on the other computer you don't have Microsoft's 
redistributable packages installed. config files make me think .net however 
seeing an attempted access doesn't mean it's a required file.

aside from libeay32, libssl32, ssleay32, the files you listed have the same 
version numbers as those released by the gnuwin32 project. do you know the 
origin of the other files?

ssleay32.dll traditionally and as far as I know is only generated during a 
visual c++ compile, and only under my own weird circumstances have I seen it 
generated otherwise (in msys once or twice when fooling with some scripts). 
Maybe someone made a copy of libssl32.dll as ssleay32.dll for compatibility 
reasons. As far as I'm concerned that's not a good idea. 

But for now let's assume you're missing the redistributable needed by your msvc 
ssleay32.dll. install microsoft c++ redistributable

or you can try this later wget 1.12 and openssl 1.0.0a compile. also note that 
using wget 1.11.4 for https exposes you to a security issue, so it's best to 
use a later version.
download wget-1.12.1-devel-and-openssl-1.0.0a.zip
put files in a separate directory
