Yeah. thats the trick, your right forearm and palm must rest on the strings above the string u are tapping, and good muting while tapping is probably the hardest thing wit tapping, so the good string muting comes with practise. I just got the hang of tapping and its a fun thing to practice

Do you have a whammy bar because that always adds string noise. No way around it its just one con of having one.

It is not the bar that affects it, it is the concept of a "floating bridge". It picks up the vibrations and distributes it across all of the strings. Try this, hit the high E string and mute it in about half a second or so and you will hear noise coming off of all the strings after it is muted. It is one undesirable aspect of a "Floyd Rose" style bridge along with prolonged string change times, and string wear.

So do you think a new set of strings would help, If so how often sould I change them, I play fingerstyle acoustic guitar and I hardly have to change them, but I know the electric guitar is different and playing with a pick causes a lot of wear, I am totally new at playing the electric guitar so any help would be much appreciated,oh by the way my guitar is Ibanez rg350 dx and it dose have a floating bridge just as you had said, many thanks....

Replacing the strings won't help you just have to learn to dampen the other strings somehow that is comfortable for you.
