    Never mind.
    I used this link and managed to download ok.
    https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Download_Old_Builds_5_0

    It's an "older" build...... 5.0.12, instead of 5.0.14.

    You have the right link in your first post. The x64 and x86 versions are now a single file installer. Click on the blue text for the download.

    The problem is.................. at the end of download there is the warning of Win.exe is corrupt or invalid.
    That is why I posted the question.
    I am not sure if I should use it.
    That's why I went for the "older" version which was downloaded without warning.
