With this function I get a random name, but is it possible to end these name's with the extension ".txt"?
 
Now it is for example ibnke0jb.dp3.
 Private Function GetTempFolder() As String
        Dim folder As String = Path.Combine(Path.GetTempPath, Path.GetRandomFileName)
        Do While Directory.Exists(folder) Or File.Exists(folder)
            folder = Path.Combine(Path.GetTempPath, Path.GetRandomFileName)
        Loop
 
        Return folder
    End Function

Yes, return
Path.ChangeExtension( folder, "txt")
This can be your modified code to do the file checking properly too-
 
Private Function GetTempFolder() As String
        Dim folder As String =  Path.ChangeExtension(Path.Combine(Path.GetTempPath, Path.GetRandomFileName))
        Do While Directory.Exists(folder) Or File.Exists(folder)
            folder = Path.ChangeExtension(Path.Combine(Path.GetTempPath, Path.GetRandomFileName))
        Loop
 
        Return folder
    End Function
 
Though that repetition is really bugging me xD
