Operating Windows XP laptop. Kaspersky up to date.
Working on a word document 5 pages long, saved the original document (thank goodness) and then renamed the document and continued to work on it. Then without me touching the mouse the cursor began moving itself at speed vertically and then horizontally then from righ to left deleting every line of text as it went. I have run malwarebytes, kaspersky and just downloaded microsoft security essentials, cc cleaner but none of these scans have picked up anything. What do you think it was and what else can I do please

My suggestion would be to do a HJT scan and post on the forum ... then ask Speedy nicely if he can have a look at it for you.

Hijack this available to download from HERE (http://sourceforge.net/projects/hjt/) if you haven't already got it.

Disable remote access. Turn off your modem, or disable its port when you're not needing the net.
