I got a serious problem with IE8. OS is XP SP3 fully updated. After first start IE8 uses 20-40 mb of ram. As I open new tabs the the usage of ram climbs up even if I close some of them and reaches 2 - 2.2 gb of ram for IE only. If I close IE everything is back to normal amd the ram is freed up. The cycle begins again when I open IE.
