That is a link to a torrent, where the file is partially downloaded from many 
sources, spreading the load over those sources.
Many people have no idea what a torrent is or how to implement it.

Next to the link you clicked on, at gimp.org, is a link in brackets (http) 
click on that and it takes you to a more regular download
http://download.gimp.org/pub/gimp/v2.8/windows/gimp-2.8.14-setup-1.exe

However to save load on gimp.org which has limited resources, do try one of 
the mirror sites shown on
http://www.gimp.org/downloads/  choose closest geographically, go there and 
look for a download.
