Default Manual Window Very Difficult to Roll Up and Down

I have manual crank windows, and my passenger side front window was kind of hard to roll up and down. So today I tried fixing it. With the window rolled all the way down, I sprayed some silicone lube in the channels where the glass travels up and down. This made the window even harder to roll up and down. It's so bad now that when I try rolling the windows up or down it feels like the crank is going to break off from the force needed to turn. The silicone lube trick worked great for the rear windows though. Any ideas?

Don't force it, summat else will be damaged.
I would remove the door skin and get access to the regulator assembly, something is binding it up, or broken and no longer supporting the frame the glass rides up in.
