replace your javascript with the following :
<script type="text/javascript">
window.onload = function() {

    document.getElementsByName("join_gold_form_c")[0].onsubmit = function() {
		var howManyChecked = nbCheckboxChecked();
        if(howManyChecked!=3) {
            alert("select 3 checkboxes, no more no less!");
        	return false;
        }
        return true;
    }

    var inputs = document.getElementsByTagName("input");
    for(var i=0;i<inputs.length;i++)  if( inputs[i].name && /^chkCompany.$/.test(inputs[i].name) ) inputs[i].onclick = function() {
        if(nbCheckboxChecked()==3) disableCheckboxes(true);
        else disableCheckboxes(false);
    };
}

function nbCheckboxChecked() {
    n = 0;
	var inputs = document.getElementsByTagName("input");
    for(var i=0;i<inputs.length;i++) if( inputs[i].name && /^chkCompany.$/.test(inputs[i].name) && inputs[i].checked ) n++; 
    return n;
}

function disableCheckboxes(b) {
	var inputs = document.getElementsByTagName("input");
	for(var i=0;i<inputs.length;i++) if( inputs[i].name && /^chkCompany.$/.test(inputs[i].name) ) inputs[i].disabled = !inputs[i].checked && b;
}
</script>
