Does anyone know what Virus this is?

Specs: Windows XP
I have a virus on my computer, my virus protectors are not finding it, and I have no idea what it is and I can't find anyone having the same problems as me.

These are the problems I am having, I'm hoping someone here might be able to help me atleast find out what virus I have

1. when I click on an icon on my desktop it cycles through all the icons and opens the furthest to the left
2. it does this same thing when I try to click on a folder.
3. If I click and hold onto a window, the window and the mouse move to the left until it goes off screen or until I let the window go.
4. when I get a pop up asking me a yes or no question, it cycles back and forth between the button making it impossible for me to choose one.
5. It does the same thing with the buttons at the top of window (the file, edit, view etc.) buttons making it impossible for me to choose one.
6. whenever I try to type somethings it moves the curser all the way to the left so if I type something I have to do it backwards.

thank you in advance

Try this, I have listed all the tricks I know about, to outsmart the infection.

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

Common Issues, Questions, and their Solutions, Frequently Asked Questions.
VIPRE Rescue Program
Try it in Safe mode.
If it won't run, rename the downloaded mbam-setup.exe file to mb.exe to help work around certain malware that will block it from being run.
If it still will not run.
1: Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features and uninstall Malwarebytes.
Next redownload Malwarebytes but rename it before you download it to your desktop. As you are in the process of downloading when you get to the point that the "enter name of file to save to" box appears, in the "filename" slot, rename mbam-setup.exe to something.exe, then click Save.
If it installed but will not run, navigate to this folder:
2: C:\Programs Files\Malwarebytes' AntiMalware
At the top of the page, Tools > Folder Options > View, click > Show hidden files and folders and untick > Hide extensions for known file types.
How to see hidden files in Windows
Rename all the .exe files in the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder and try to run it again.
When it opens, update 1st.
If it won't update after installing, update manually.
Download & install.
