Default Window Will Not Stay Up

We have a 2 year-old home with vinyl windows and several will not stay
up (open) - they slide down after we let go of them. Anyone have a way
to correct this problem?. Obviously, we can just prop them up with with
a stick but this is not an ideal solution. Thanks.

There is acounter-weight mechanism in the left & right tracks that has
failed or sprung. A profesional window installer/repairer can install a
new one.

What you need is "Window Viagraź"
Keeps your windows up and erect.

You might consider getting yourself some Viagra too. Windows tend to
imitate their owners, and if you cant keep it up, your windows will
droop too. Ask your wife what she thinks about your poor window
erections and she will mention your own poor performance.
