Hi - the error you're getting is now to do with the YR client not being able to find the core file for the client to run. You would need to reinstall (or find where Avast) put that file. (Link below should help)

Avast and some similar anti-virus software will likely kick up a lot of false positives, usually because it's not seen the file before/or it's not a common file to it's scanner.

Great, thanks, I found the file in Avast Chest. Named: IDP.ALEXA.52

Is it your file? And is it safe?

Yes that's the one - it is but you can also upload it to virustotal to be safe if you wish! https://www.virustotal.com/gui/home

The client is also open source to give you some peace of mind.  https://github.com/CnCNet/xna-cncnet-client

and side question. I deleted completely CNCNET using "programs and features" do you think it's possible to restore somehow my 4,000 maps? I lost them all. Forgot to copy them...

Hmm that might be a bit tricky. Your maps custom maps folder may have remained, it's worth double checking where you had the game installed and browser to it with windows explorer. 

Could try also searching for .map extensions, it may turn up somewhere? 

Failing all of that, you can probably find most of your maps online (just type in the search the name and it should appear) https://mapdb.cncnet.org/search/?game=yr&search=
