Figuring out which DLLHost.exe belongs to which COM+ Application

I wanted to find out what is inside of a particular DLLHost.exe.   I went into Component Services and used "View|Status" do see the PIDs of each COM+ Application which I can then correlate to a PID in Task Manager.  Shouldn't there be a COM+ Explorer/Spy/Info Application for this, or did I miss it?

My concern on my home machine is when I run across dllhost.exe in the process list, and I haven't been doing anything close to working with COM+. I'm always fearful that it is some rogue dlIhost (with an uppercase i) that is going to format my harddrive and steal my frozen pizzas.

Normally there is always a dllhost.exe running for the system application.
