Thanks again and for your patience. I'm using Stockfish and have removed the cache setting. I tried disabling the windows paging file but the computer has problem starting up.
So I have had to leave the windows paging file back on and have increased the HASH to 14GB and re-tested.
Seems fine, but can't go larger with the total size of the tb files which remain at 14.9 GB.
Setting SF's hash to 14GB on a 16GB system leaves about no memory at all for caching TB files. With 6-piece TBs, that is asking for trouble.

If your PC cannot boot with 16GB RAM and no pagefile, then something seems wrong with your installation.
