What is using the COMM port ?

  aph 17:42 19 Aug 03

OS is NT4.0 sp6

I have an IPAQ which I connect to the PC via the serial port.
This has been working fine but all of a sudden I got a message saying that the COMM port could not be found during synchronisation.

I re-installed the software (MS ActiveSync) and all returned to normal then on my next restart the problem returned.

Is there anyway I can check what is using the port?

thanks in advance
