It IS confusing. I would recommend this article: Introduction To COM, Michael Dunn[^], as a preliminary explanation. Also, an excellent review is: Inside COM+ Base Services[^]
As COM evolved, Microsoft released a number of proprietary implementations, and invented new names to distinguish the various, existing libraries. First was OLE, which was released before 1996, with their reigning operating system (Windows 95). You can search MSJ (Microsoft System Journal, the precusor to MSDN Magazine) for introductory articles about OLE for difinitive information, for instance: Don Box, Introducing Distributed COM and New OLE Features in Windows NT 4[^]. ActiveX components are COM components, and usually have the OCX extension (but, can be compiled as a DLL), and were initially intended as Web Page objects, to add functionality to Web sites. Check this out: Build OLE Controls for the Internet That Are Fast, Smart, and Interactive[^]
The problem is that once you release a COM library component, you can't alter it, recompile it, and re-release it with the same name (this usually introduces breaking changes into client applications).
COM classes that export functionality are supposed to be registered in your system registry (and have well-known value keys, like InProcServer). Launch OLE COM Object Explorer OLE COM Object Viewer, MSDN[^](which lives in the Tool folder of your Visual Studio install directory), and investigate the existing registered components on your system to get an idea of just how pervasive this technology.
