Download another program capable of running Java. I use Sun Java, which is freely available from Sun's website. There are others out there which people prefer over Sun... but I can't think of them right now.

Once that's done, anything that requires javascript should start working again. It is a royal PITA that virus scanning software relies on it. I remember having to install Sun Java on a Win 98 machine because NAV stopped working.

If I remember correctly, Windows Update does not use JavaScript but <b>ActiveX Control</b>. Go to Internet Options\Security and choose <b>Default level</b> button to see if it fixed.
