I wouldn't rely on Task Manager to give you a good representation of memory
usage. You will have much better information if you set up some Perfmon
It is normal for the worker process to use a fair amount of memory. As
memory is needed the garbage collector will take care of it for you. You
have little control on when an object is GCd.
Hope that helps.
