I have a fully-licensed version of Pixinsight on my computer and for some off reason I have a black box appear as my cursor when trying to do a dynamic crop which makes completing the process very difficult. Remedies for this issue are appreciated.
Issue with Pixinsight showing a black box as my cursor

Have to ask the obvious.. Is this only happening in Pixinsight? Did you upgrade it recently? Is it only happening when using Dynamic crop?

Which version of PI are you using? The latest 1.8.8-9 or something else?
PI draws custom cursors, depending on which process you are using, if you're over an image etc etc.
It seems that there are some issues with the updated QT library included with the latest PI 1.8.8-9, so yo might try going back to 1.8.8-8 and seeing if that helps

I agree with @StephenW. To me, this looks like an interaction between the QT library functions and either the video card device driver or the version of DirectX installed.
I would fist check the video card device driver to see how old it is and whether an update may be available. I would also check that you have the latest version of MS DirectX installed. QT may have a minimum requirement with respect to supported DirectX versions.
