What is the difference between multiuse and global multiuse COM components

I'd like someone to point me to a good description of a comparison between instancing a component as multiuse or global multiuse. I just want to understand in what situations I would set the different types of instancing.

Just a url is all I need. But a few words of your own wisdom wouldn't go amiss. I've tried searching on google, but found it hard to sort out the chaff.

Cheers guys.
Dave.

Now, using GlobalMultiUse allows you to access functions without instancing of an object of the ActiveX dll, I discourage this unless the ActiveX dll is purely a collection of functional procedures. As soon as you have some classes in it which you can instanciate, this can result in inproper release of memory...
