Dragging things across a deck or a floor will cause scratches. If they're not too deep you may be able to buff(lightly sand) them out.
Screwing down the raised boards will keep them down.
I would have not used nails on the deck.

Also, if you did use screws and they are popping out, then the wrong screws were used, they were driven in way too deep, or the framing was off which resulted in undo pressure in certain spots of the decking board causing the boards to pull off.

According to the Trex installation instructions, only screws are recommended as fasteners for ALL Trex products--see page 16. On the same page it states using any non-recommended fastener voids your warranty! And any sanding will also void the warranty.

We have a Trex deck and it has been near bulletproof. We have two hyper, good-sized dogs and they tear across the deck all day long on their way in and out of the house and there is not a mark. No scratching from furniture and my teenaged daughters and their friends who make heavy use of the deck are certainly not gentle.
