How can I write to my c drive?

Question

I keep getting a "unable to write to drive c:" error on my computer. When I ran scandisk it found problems but was unable to fix them. Here is what Scandisk said "Scandisk encountered a data error while writing to the root directory" . I can run programs on my computer but I keep getting the message unable to write to drive c: hit any key to continue. Is my hard drive dying. I started having this problem after downloading registery mechanic from Cnet.com. It found problems and fixed the first 6 but it showed many more problems needing fixed.
