Script Component is disabled

I am trying my first project. I am using the Roll A Ball Tutorial. I added the first script to the Player Object. It added fine [no errors], then immediately became disabled in the inspector property. I am assuming this is a problem with the default settings. Can you help me enable the script?

Remove the component and then add it back? This should really be a comment but i dont have enough rep to post one.

I have done that. Within a moment the script disables. I was wondering if there was a default setting during the install?
