High Memory usage by w3wp.exe and sqlserver.exe

I'm running a server 2003 R2 SP2 with WSUS 3.0 SP1. The w3wp.exe and sqlserver.exe processes are using up to 350MB RAM at some times. I have received Event 1000 logs and am unsure how to stop this from happening. Is this a normal thing or can this be stopped.

Thanks
