Store.exe is the exchange information store service and it will take a lot of memory this is a normal behavior you don't need to worry about it

Are you getting hit with a lot of sobig..f or other virus attempts??  That will keep your information store busy especially if you have antivirus services running on the box..

As long there is still free memory in the task manager this behavior is normal for "store.exe"
