Stereo comes on and off. When it goes off completely the windows will not work
This will take place for several minutes or hours before coming back on. Any suggestions around this?

Well.... You can rule out a fuse issue... Those two are on different circuits... The only real commonality between them is that they are both tied into the accessory portion of your ignition switch. (OFF-ACC-ON) I would check all the connections on the windows and the radio to ensure proper connection, but my gut feeling is that your ignition switch is going out.
