I'm running into an issue with 1and1.com and activeforums3.5 modules.
It's a permissions issue I belive on the Framework directory
System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path "C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\Temporary ASP.NET Files\dotnetnuke\d309a00c\36d8f251\3vhq5y4n.0.vb" is denied. at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError
Has anybody dealt with them at all, I sent them an email and I am going to try to give them a call but not being overly technically inclined Im not sure what I should be telling them.

Goto www.webhostingtalk.com and search about them.
You error is so easy to solve. Tell them to give the
"C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\Temporary ASP.NET Files
a read/write for the user Network Service
That will solve the problem 100%

Ok, so I'm NOT going to turn this into a gripe session about 1and1.com's customer service. Instead I'm going to relate the workaround I found for their customer support.
Basically their customer support thought I was a hacker or something trying to gain access to their servers. Effectively he blew me off, wanted screen shots, etc. For some reason that I haven't determined, the activeforums worked for him, no error. *boggle*
Anyways, the problem is that the c:\windows\microsoft.net\framework\v1.1.4322\Temporary ASP.NET files\ directory needs read/write as the above poster stated. If the ISP/Hosting company wont play, go around them.
Locate the directory on the webserver where your domain is located. In 1and1.com's case it was c:\kurden\homepages\XX\Dxxxxxxxx\
You can find the X's if you go into their domain mangement where you set the default homepages for your domains. Just make note of the numbers.
next part is simple, just go into web.config and do a search on 'compilations' and change the line to look like this:
<compilation debug="false" tempDirectory="c:\kunden\homepages\XX\dXXXXXXX\" />
Since you always have full rights to your own directory structure, this solved my problem for the error messages I was receiving.
I wrote a similiar message to their customer support and recommended that they add it to their documentation for dotnetnuke/ASP.NET in general so some other poor SOB wont have to spend a day trying to fix it.
Thanks for your assistance and the noggin nudge that got me looking the right way :)

Yeah, but I am using the $108.00 a month Windows Server hosting. It rocks! Ultra Fast, Ultra Cheap. I had to work around a few issues because the $108.00 plan is only Windows Server 2003 Web Hosting edition, which include: 1) Inability to install SQL Server
2000 on Web Hosting Edition and 2) No VPN support. I got around #1 with a secret sauce, and #2 with OpenVPN.
I host four sites on the server, and if anyone is interested in hosting higher end clients, I will pay anywhere from 20% to 40% recurring commission.
