Everytime I try to open CM Helper now, it shows something like this. Deleteing the whole CM Helper and and downloading it again doesn't help.

Logging started...
FWIW, I couldn't save a copy of this log at:

I gotta say I had problems when I first started but it was my own doing. Since then 0 issues.
I think it's great, keeps track of all my shit.

I beg to differ, Ted. IMO, CM Helper is quite useful. I typically have four to six concurrent CM PBEM games. CM Helper keeps them all sorted with minimal fuss from me. The chat function is also nice.

For example, I just clicked the CM Helper Icon and it gave me this information:

Screenshot 2017-04-06 17.41.23.png

Looks like I have one turn waiting from my mirror game with @Will S . I'll wait until he posts the other turn before responding. Looks like I sent @Hedgehog a turn (Battle for Chaumont) three hours ago, and he has yet to respond. "T6A" is my Battle of the Bulge campaign game. "Russia trumps MG", is @Artemis258 attempt at humor in our CMBS game, in which he keeps losing T90s every other turn.

I certainly am not a PC by any stretch but CMH did not work for me cause I had the CM titles in places other than defaults. Now I know there is a way to "Point" CMH to the right area but I am not good enough to jump through that hoop. Sooooo, I deleted all my games then let them go to their default locations and viola, boom done. Don't listen to me, this is what I did...

CM Helper sometimes has a problem like the one you described. It happens very seldom (maybe once per year).

To fix this problem, it is usually enough to close CMH and delete the following file (copied from the log you provided in your post):

C:\\Users\\Jaroslav\\AppData\\Roaming\\GreenAsJade\\CMHelper\\AppState.txt

Then restart CMH and it should work again, without any problems. CMH will just create a new AppState.txt when starting (if there is no pre-existing one), so you don't have to worry about deleting it.
Worth a try before you begin uninstalling / re-installing everything.

You're yet to take an objective, and I count at least 2.5 platoons' worth of burning Brads, 1 Abrhams M-killed and 1 a total write-off for a measily few tanks...

Back on-topic, I've noticed my CMH, with no recent changes from me, crashes to desktop the moment after it takes any action at all... anyone else had this issue?

* It still does it's job - just the moment it finishes it CTDs/.

Good advice, just worked for me, bookmarked. ;)
