I dont see the point in having it on your computer if nothing uses it, same with flash
This is not correct. IE9, at least, does not have it built in.

Never really used IE9 but I tought that was the standard of browsers today. Good to know thou, and now when I think about it thats probably why Steam says I don't have flash installed since it uses IE if I am not wrong
