I have a 1997 Porsche Boxter where the windows opens during driving with my roof up, and i am not able to close them again without releasing the roof handle and close it again. Sometimes it opens halfway, other times all the way. The same sometimes happen when i start the car. Anybody know what might cause this to happen?

I doubt the roof switch has any influence over this other than telling the brain the roof is being opened. The brain will then tell the windows go down and presumably will tell them to stop after a predetermined time - unless there is a facility built into each window mechanism. Unlikely as both windows are affected.
The fact a fault exists that cause the windows to go right down might simply confuse the system enough to go on strike or what is effectively two problems might really be just one.
In order to discover why things are going wrong a thorough understanding of how the system works is needed but even that knowledge will be of limited use without the laptop and dedicated software and the necessary experience to decipher the results and to adjust, repair or reset the system.
Your car is more computer on wheels than simple car. When a computer does strange things it is because it is receiving the wrong information, because it is unable to execute it's commands, because the software is corrupted or electronic problems within itself.
for that reason(dead battery) Porsche made an Emergency operating cable.Send me an email and i will send the picture.The cable is located in your right front fender behind the black plastic lining.. firstname.lastname@example.org
I just looked at my wiring diagram and see that a fuse from fuse Holder D, Fuse D3,it is a 30amp fuse. I would start here. I may also be a good idea to have a test light if you plan on doing your electrical repairs.
I also see that another fuse connects to your top control unit; it will be fuse B6, 15amp located in fuse Holder B.
Porsche made an emergency operation cable which is located on you passenger side wheel well.
behind the fender lining.
send me a mail and i will send you detail picture from Porsche factory.
