What operating system are you using?
How much free, clean, defragmented space is on your C drive?
64 bit, x64-based processor
This is a new computer, so I should have plenty of space on the C drive.
Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, Mac Yosemite, Mac El Capitan? They're all 64-bit.
How much free space do you have on your C drive? Have you run Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter since starting up your computer? Initializing a computer can cause all kinds of fragmentation and create thousands of junk files.
Which processor do you have and how much RAM?
Does the program start up after you reboot?
We really do some some details in order to help you troubleshoot this, Shane. Incomplete answers don't give us much to work with.
If Windows, and you're using Task Manager, right click > end process and then try to open PE 14.
I have never had the problem with PE, but have on occasion had it happen on Premiere Pro. It seems to come and go with no rhyme or reason why.
This might be a layout corruption issue.
Rename the 14.0 folder from "Mydocuments\Adobe\Premiere Elements" and try again.
I'm having the same issue.

400 GB Free HD Space
