No, it isn't! It doesn't mysteriously appear on any system. You create
it to personalise certain aspects of your use of R and runtime:

I currently have this in mine (Linux):

$ cat ~/.Rprofile
options(repos = "http://cran.uk.r-project.org")

You need to check out the Windows specific help in regard to this aspect
of configuring R as where you stick these files etc may be different on
