reset your computer, disconnect the battery (-) for a couple minutes and try.

Idle usually changes when you use your windows or power items etc, you'll find that its worse when the window has finished its travel but the switch hasn't returned to neutral.

sounds like a low voltage battery or crappy alternator if the RPM drops while the window is being used. not enough power to spark and do the windows at the same time. 1000 is a pretty high idle anyway.
