Post pictures of the windows. Both, interior and exterior shots.
What type of windows? New construction or replacement? How old is the house? What brand window
More then likely the air leakage is coming in around the perimeter of the window which would be defined as a poor installaton. This is fixable but will probably require removing moldings, installing insulation, caulking, etc..
