How do I fix my old Windows XP?

My XP is one of the first XPs ever. Nothing's wrong with it, but occasionally, the mouse (on the computer, not the one I use to move it) moves around randomly and closes some of my files (mainly internet explorer) and opens new ones (Mainly Windows Movie Maker). What do I do to stop this?

Update:

I don't own a cellphone...

    This problem sometimes caused by a mouse problem especially -laser mouse- try to change it, otherwise, you may have a Trojan or virus, so try to use a strong updated anti virus to clean your computer then use Win XP SP3 to update your windows by the latest service pack.

    It could be the mouse itself, have you tried changing the mouse for another?

    Keep your cell phone away from your desk.

    They can interfere, especially if you have a wireless mouse.
