To fix, a change needs to be made in the SiteAnalytics.config file using these steps:.
  1. Access your site files through FTP or the Plesk Control Panel
  2. In the root folder(httpdocs) locate the SiteAnalytics.config file. 
  3. Edit the file, and change the <InjectTop>True</InjectTop> to <InjectTop>False</InjectTop>
  4. Recycle your site's application pool. Then attempt to save the module again.
Thank you to the users of the DNN Software Forums for their diligence in providing a fix for this issue.
