That's a good bet. It would help if you tell us the conditions that blow the fuse - rolling up, rolling down, both or just sitting there. If it happens while just sitting there I suspect the short is not in the regulator at all, since most (all?) models only apply power to one side of the motor, and ground to the other, while moving the window.
Assuming the fuse only blows when trying to move the window one way or the other, the answer to the problem is inside the door again. If you had it done at a shop, take it back. If you did it yourself, time to remove the panel again. If the fuse blows when the motor is connected and you try to operate it, but not when the motor is disconnected, there is a short inside the motor. If the fuse blows even when the motor is disconnected check for pinched areas in the wiring.
What model and year Acura, BTW?
