Nice,

COM is short for Component Object Model. It's a way of allowing
different languages access to the same binary components. It is
interface-based.

COM+ is a hosting service for COM components which provides different
services (transactions, synchronization, web services, object pooling, to
name a few) through interception of the interface implementation.

Hope this helps.
