electric windows shorting - fuse blowing

911 996 Targa 2002
 
the car has electric front windows - no problems for many years then last year the stopped working and i changed the fuse
and that fixed it - same problem again but now the replacement fuse blows as soon as fuse is put in
(it is normal for the power windows remain live for a couple of hours even after the key is removed)
 
windows are now stuck open - luckily just an inch 
 
two questions
 
1  any ideas where the short might be ?
 
2  any way to close the windows - by override or mechanically ?
 
thanks
