MATLAB won't load

I was using MATLAB and then had an error with my desktop and had to turn the computer off, I think I made the mistake of not closing MATLAB when I did this although the file I was working on was saved.
Now when I try to load up MATLAB either by clicking on it or trying to open a MATLAB file MATLAB will not load, you just see the icon indicating loading for a second and afterwards nothing happens, I don't want to just uninstall and re-install MATLAB as I feel like the problem will persist.

If you don't want to do that then you may/will have to wait until tomorrow until you can call the Mathworks technical support (ask for installation help).
If I uninstall and re-install, I assume nothing strange will happen to my saved MATLAB files and that I can open them once more when I have MATLAB back up and running ie. uninstalling won't remove any files or potentially corrupt anything?

It should not, though if you used the setpath button to set up a special path somewhere, like s special folder where you have stored custom utilities you have written, then you will have to set up those folders again with the setpath button.
