If you're connecting from bootloader, use fastboot not ADB.

When I have the phone on and connect the usb it recognizes it. But when I run the ruu update,and the phone boots into the bootloader, it says usb device us not recognized. I have HTC sync installed on my computer. Windows 8 64 bit.

You can get the stock images from htcdev dot com.
You will need to create an account but it's free. Also, is your bootloader locked or unlocked?
If it is unlocked, you will need to relock it before flashing a signed stock rom.

I got it back to stock AT&T 2.3.5 by pulling the img file out of the downloaded ruu. I still cant get the phone to be recognized by my computer in the bootloader screen though? So I can't get it rooted or unlocked on the htc developer site. What am I doing wrong??? Also what should I use to root it. I have tried easy ace root tool. and will not work

Are you using fastboot or ADB? What is the error message from the Easy Ace Root Tool?
