I ran Verify Disk under Disk Utilities and it found the following error:

Verifying volume “Macintosh HD”
Checking HFS Plus volume.
Checking Extents Overflow file.
Checking Catalog file.
Checking multi-linked files.
Checking Catalog hierarchy.
%)
Checking Extended Attributes file.
Checking volume bitmap.
Checking volume information.
Volume Header needs minor repair
d.",1)
Macintosh HD
Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit


1 HFS volume checked
Volume needs repair

When I click to repair it, the First Aid Dialoge box pops up, but then there is a failure. "The underlying task reported failure on exit."

What exactly is my problem and why wont it let me fix it?

Thanks

you can't repair a disk that you're currently booted from. You need to boot up from OS X Install Disk 1, and from there you can get to Disk Utility to repair the disk.

I would give Onyx a try...its free. Otherwise go out and buy Disk Warrior 4.

What is the problem....too technical for me but I'm sureone will be along soon that can tell you.

As visualpurple said, you can fix this from the install disk. Put it in, reboot and hold down C when the chime sounds. This will start the installer - don't worry, it's perfectly safe. Go to the Utilities menu and select Disk Utility and you will be able to properly fix the drive.
