Create a temporary new administrator account. Reboot and log in to the new account. Try to run Pr or En or the AME from the new account. If it works, and if your old account is an admin account, log in to it and launch Pr normally from a shortcut. Hold down the Shift+Alt keys while it loads, and keep them pressed until you see the Welcome screen.
Let us know what happens.

>accidentally shut off my computer
1st, very basic question... Windows or Mac?
-See the Information FAQ http://forums.adobe.com/message/4200840 for what you need to say when you ask a question
2nd question... HOW did you shut off your computer?
For Windows (I don't do Mac) there is generally a "graceful" shut down when you push the power button, since the power button on modern computers is not DIRECTLY connected to the power supply, it goes through a motherboard control circuit that tells the power supply to shut down only AFTER all open programs are closed
If you hit some kine of external power switch (rocker switch on a surge protector, for instance) so power was ABRUPTLY cut off... you very likely have a corrupted Windows System Registry... and that would require a complete hard drive formatting and reinstall of everything to fix the problem
Already tried that, nothing came of it same exact thing happened
Sorry i just realized i forget my specs, Windows 7 professional 64 bit, intel core i7 2617 sandy bridge 1.5GHz, 8 gig dual channel memory, 700 gig harddrive (300 open).
It is a alienware laptop i purchased specifically for editing. The battery failed in it and when i unplug the power cord insta shutdown. So it was not graceful. But this has happened before without it failing. Sorry again for not posting my
besides a system reformat
Given the information provided, that'd be the only thing I can suggest. (After you get a new battery, of course. )
