This is an error with an unknown cause. See the suggestions below to try to fix the issue.
1. Disable Antivirus Software
If your antivirus software has not been able to find any malicious software, it may be what is causing MATLAB to malfunction. Try disabling it and then launching MATLAB.
2. Reinstall MATLAB
Your installation of MATLAB may be corrupt. This would mean that you need to uninstall and reinstall MATLAB. See the links below if you are unsure how to do this.
