Cursor Becomes Error Symbol- Cannot drag ANYTHING

After having Premiere Pro 2023 open for seemingly random amounts of time, my cursor becomes this strange error symbol and prevents me from dragging ANYTHING in Premiere. I cannot drag clips on the timeline and I cannot drag effects onto the timeline or into the effects window. I haven't found a single other person that has encountered this issue before and its so incredibly frustrating to deal with every time it happens.


I've been dealing with this for well over a year now, despite clearing my cache, clearing my preferences, updates, and reinstalling the software entirely. The only solution is to restart the software, however, sometimes the issue will come up after merely 5 minutes of having the software open. 

Can anyone help me?
