Initail values are "fixed" (actually configurable), but there is also a feature in TCP/IP Stack of Windows 7 called "TCP Receive Window Auto-Tuning".

Take a look at these articles from "The Cable Guy"

@Landi gave a presentation at Sharkfest 2012 about some issues with TCP receive window scaling.

Look for: "Effects of Receiver-Side Window Scaling on Enterprise Networks"
