Visual Basic .NET 2005 is part of Visual Studio.  NewEgg sells it:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832116004

For 50% more, you can get it with MSDN (a FANTASTIC resource).

If you purchased it online for a lot less, then odds are you don't have a truly legal copy - where did you buy it - why not share the good deal with us?
