If the SPFILE exists, and is in the correct location, Oracle will
attempt to start using the SPFILE. If the SPFILE is not found, Oracle
will attempt to start using the PFILE, if it is found in the expected
location. You will likely find that the expected location is C:\oracle
\product\10.2.0\db_1\database on your server. Do not edit the SPFILE
using Notepad or Wordpad, as this will corrupt the file. Ideally, any
time you make a change to the SPFILE, wait a couple days to make
certain that there are no problems, and then make the same change in
the PFILE. If you encounter a problem, just rename the SPFILE and
start the database instance using the PFILE, and then create a new
SPFILE from the PFILE.

Regarding the request for tips or hints, or a pre-optimized PFILE...
there is a reason why Oracle does not ship with a pre-optimized PFILE
- the parameters need to be adjusted in response to performance
problems identified with _your_ specific database and access
patterns. The Oracle 10g Performance Tuning Guide (free - in the
Oracle documentation set) describes various hints and tips for the
parameters. One person's silver bullet performance tip is another
person's bullet to the head - change the parameters in response to
performance problems identified with your specific database and access
