Does Adobe Flash Player crash your Internet Explorer?

About a year ago, Flash Player began to crash my Internet Explorer 6.0 with a pop-up message claiming that there had been an illegal instruction in module FLASH9B.OCX. I submitted the register dump information to Adobe and they had me reload (again) their latest version, which I did several times without success.
Adobe then said that something must have become corrupt in my Win98SE and that I should not attempt to use their Flash Player. I ran the Win98 tools to verify my Win98 files and I replaced the half dozen files reported as suspicious.
Flash still crashes IE.
So I removed Flash permenantly and because the world runs on Flash media, I am constantly being bombarded with pop-up requests to load Flash Player, which I must constantly refuse.
In most cases I can view a web page even after refusing to load Flash Player, but occassionally, I get the same crash related to module FLASH9B.OCX.
If I have never accepted these opportunities to reload Flash Player, how is it that my Internet Explorer is crashing in a Flash module (FLASH9B.OCX) which is not supposed to be on my system?
Does Flash creap in on its own from some websites without my awareness and approval?
I asked Adobe if at least they could give me a patch that would stop the nuisance pop-up requests to load Flash Player, but they chose not to answer.
Neither does the pop-up blocker I installed prevent that all powerful Flash Player pop-up request to download.
Am I the only person on the planet who can't use Flash Player?
With the monopoly that Adobe Flash Player holds on the market, why are they so uninterested in debugging my problem?
I would have thought that they would be anxious to know what the limits of their Flash Player really are.
Perhaps they know that their latest Flash Player versions don't work well with the oldest of Windows operating systems and it isn't worth their time to fix any compatability problems.
Thanks for any advice.
