When I first rooted my PC was having trouble recognizing the phone as well. Make sure you have ALL of the drivers installed. The drivers for adb in recovery/boot are different that the drivers the GNex uses once boot into the OS.
Once it's plugged in, you have to actually go into Device Manager and find the "unrecognized device", then you select from a list of drivers. it will be called Android ADB or something along those lines.
