I ask because Java Quick Starter has apparently interfered with XP Power Schemes of mine.

Java is only needed if you use software that requires it. Some programs that use Java include the Adobe Creative Suite and LibreOffice, you can see more listed here. I do recommend disabling Java in web browsers these days, however you may encounter a site here or there that may require it. If you don't use any software or websites that require Java then I would recommend uninstalling or disabling it. Scott.

Scott, would it be a good idea to prevent Google Chrome from allowing any site to run JavaScript?

You may be confusing Java with JavaScript. The latter is used by most websites today. Scott.
