Chances are the motor for that window is bad. It may be an electrical issue such as a short, or disconnected wire. Your best bet is to try the motor first unless you see the actual wiring problem visually. You may have a problem within the electronics. In window motors, there is a 'mica conductor' in line with one of the commutator brushes and the wiring leading to the brush. This conductor loses its conductivity over a period of time and slows the operation of the motor, typically the window will go down but not back up, it's really a built in failure of the motor (inducing the purchase of an expensive new motor).

This is easily overcome, use a short length of 15 amp copper wire and solder it over the mica conductor thereby by-passing it, a full voltage will now reach the motor bringing it back to full strength. I have done this on GM, Nissan and Ford vehicles.

Also certain (mostly older) cars have a cover over the switches to go up and down, that depending on your car, can be easily replaced. (my brother had the same problem with his 1991 Volvo.)

How do you stop system32 from popping up when you start up windows xp?

Mine has suddenly started doing this too. A required Microsoft Windows system directory, the Windows System32 directory is often located in either C:\Windows\System32 or C:\Winnt\system32. Often many Microsoft Windows error messages will contain the system32 directory because many of the system files Windows uses to run are stored in this directory. By itself the System32 directory will not cause any errors unless it is missing of course. If you are getting an error with a file in the System32 directory search for that file. No error message, it just pops up and has to be 'closed'
