  1. actually that's pretty normal for internet browsers - consider the vast task of making the amount of connections needed to use the internet, load up entire webpages and stream videos. It's a big task.
    I'm just wondering why you're using internet explorer and not google chrome.

    You shouldn't be concerned about explorer.exe using 300MB of RAM when you have 8GB total. Have a look at available physical memory on your system. I would expect that this is over 4GB when running desktop applications, and over 1GB when running games. Unless available memory is getting low, you don't have a problem.
