Process Explorer is indeed the way to go.  You can download it here:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx

highlight the running process and click on view, show lower pane, and then click on view, lower pane view, show dlls.  This will show you exactly what is going on.

The best way to do this in this case (in my opinion) is to run Microsoft Process Explorer (free from Microsoft). That will do what you want.
