Microsoft wireless intellimouse exporer 2.0 - moves on it's own.
A couple of weeks ago I installed this new wireless system. Currently we have about 4 people in the office using different versions microsoft wireless.
I thought at first that we were on the same frequency but I find it strange the mouse on it's own will go to a specific program and open it or minimize it. This happens pretty randomly - it will work for a while and then all of sudden I will get a battery low warning yet the batteries are brand new and when I check the properties it says that the battery level is good and so is the signal quality is high.

There are number of reasons and solutions why your mouse isn't working properly.
No.1. Resynchronize your mouse to the Pc. It's best to use the reset button for resynchronization.
No. 2. Change the Port (Usb port). Sometimes even the small problem with the port created this problem.
No.3. Replace the battery. If you are sure about the battery is Live, you can try with another make eg. Sony to Everydy.
No.4. Interfaces Problem. Make sure that no electronic items, metal box, Speaker, etc doesn't obstruct the connection.
No.5. Driver Update. Update the driver to the latest version. You must update from the particular website. If you are using Microsoft product, you must update the driver from the Microsoft's website.
No.6. Different System. Try out the device on several devices not only one.

I've got a Microsoft wireless Intellimouse and the batteries in that last for months - and it's on all the time. My wife bought a no-name mini wireless mouse and found the batteries last a couple of weeks.
The difference? My mouse takes two AA batteries, hers takes one AAA. So if you change mice(?) look for one that takes two AA batteries and stay away from any that don't.
I would disregard the pop up as in most cases the batteries are still good. I'd use the mouse till it stopped functioning. Why it does that I haven't figured out yet. I beleive a value has to be changed in the Registry. If I figure it out I will let you know. Bud
Recheck the magnifier to see if its set right. Go to Control Panel and click on the Mouse icon.
Then the mouse properties will appear showing the mouse buttons.
In the Left column is the button settings. The bottom one is the Right
Button, which is set for Magnify. Whenever you hit the Right
Side button the magnifier will turn on. To turn it off, hit the Right
Side Button and off it goes. You can change any of the button
settings by clicking on the drop down.
Hope this helps. Bud
