After i instaled the oracle 11g XE on windows XP i open "Get Started".I get this :"Firefox can not establish a connection with this server 127.0.0.1:8080."
On sql plus i write:"conn / as sysdba" and i get "Connected to an idle instance".
Then for "shutdown abort" => "instance shut down"
Then for "startup" =>

seems something went wrong during your installation when your spfile is not there or is not readable or somehow corrupted.
You should check your installation logs for errors, starting with cloneDBCreation.log in C:\oraclexe\app\oracle\product\11.2.0\server\config\log on your machine. That's where the creation of the spfile would be logged.
