Windows 7: What is running my com port?

What is running my com port?

When I try to hot sync via blue-tooth, I get a message that com 1 is already in use. How can I tell what is using it?

Also, I can I find a list of my hardware installed in my computer?

Thanks,

I think Rich has you covered.

Just in case, if you open Device Manager and click View>>Devices By Connection it might help.
