windows on 1996 Honda Civic

My car has always had trouble with the windows, they got stuck half-way frequently, I had it repaired at least 3 times. Now for the last few months, they do not move at all any more, except when I open the driver door all the way.
Any suggestions

Do you have power windows or manual?

If you have manual windows you either have a window track alignment problem, or a bent arm on the regulator.

Try and spray some WD-40 into the side of the window track, this will help temporarily and also pinpoint where the problem is.

If you have power windows, I have seen chipped teeth on the gear that drives the regulator that caused the window to stick at a given point every time, check to see if the motor is spinning.
