Hi Fuzba - using the aircon won't make it worse - maybe the previous owners just kept them closed and let the air-con do its work more efficiently. The noise is probably could be attributed to 2 things.
1. The tracks for the glass have become very dry - try pouring some dishwashing liquid down the tracks or better still silicon spray. Wind the windows up and down a few times and see what happens.
2. The winding cables in the window mechanism have become dry or possibly corroded - you'll need to strip the door to lubricat ewith spray grease.
If it's internal and is not treated the mechanism will eventually fail and you'll end up having to spend plenty of money. A little bit of effort now could save you pounds a plenty.
