Do you mean keeping the other strings quiet? You might be tapping too hard. Being delicate and precise is the best advise that I can give you.

very well said...by practicing it alot you will be able to get the tapping more concise but to mute strings you could rest your pinky finger across the e string not being used (assuming you are doing the hamer on and pull of with your first and third fingers)

If you've seen Satriani tap, he makes it painfully obvious that he doesn't mute the strings at all. He's just precise about it. I think that a lot of tapping has a lot to do with tone. I don't know, though. I've never had any trouble with ringing notes. Just keep practicing, and find out things that are comfortable for you. Nothing comes easy.
