I needed a specific DLL today that goes by the name libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll. The first Google result was to a site called down-dll.com

Is the site considered a relatively safe site (meaning, assuming there is a safe version of libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll out there somewhere, is the version offered by down-dll.com likely to be safe)?

As a side note, by I already downloaded it from MinGW directly, but the download was a bit slow overall. – ripper234 Oct 11 '11 at 0:31

I can't comment on the contents of the dlls but the site didn't report any errors or warnings using McAfee SiteAdvisor, Norton Safe Web or Online Link Scan

I am the Web Master of www.down-dll.com and I do take care of passing each single file I put online through VirusTotal scan.

Files that don't pass the scan test (mean, none of the virus search engine detect the file as dangerous) I DO NOT put them online and point to a online resource explaining how to check/clean your PC.
