An antivirus can also be a point of failure, disable your antivirus and check if you are able to open your quickbooks successfully or not because at times antivirus software treats some quickbooks components as virus and tries to block then. If disabling your antivirus helps then configure it with Quickbooks allowing full access.
Repair or reinstall your quickbooks. At times repair and reinstall do work but if you really want to save some time then go for a clean install of quickbooks which is a guaranteed fix where in the problem area is the software itself.
