In the command prompt cd to the directory where the file adb is and then execute the command or put the complete path where adb is in front of the command.

You are almost there.

Just type in the full path in the command window.
Code:
C:\android-sdk\platform-tools\adb kill-server
C:\android-sdk\platform-tools\adb devices
or

Code:
cd C:\android-sdk\platform-tools
.\adb kill-server
.\adb devices

This probably a stupid question but how do you know when your device is rooted is there some way of knowing ?

Thanks in advance

Ok guys I've been reading this thread through a lot of times and I'm having the same problem as Mrlarner.

I've tried all the directory in cmd ( changing them to fit where my adb is )
but I get errors all the time,

I have installed the drivers with no problem but I'm at a loss,
Can someone help me ?

I too am having problems with rooting my 101 G9.

The problem I am having is with the USB driver. The driver provided by Archos does not appear to work on either x86 or x64 systems. If I enable USB debugging and connect the device, everything goes fine up until it finds a device called ARCHOS, which it cannot find the driver for, even if I direct it to the folder containing the unzipped Archos drivers. It simply says that a compatible driver cannot be found. The exact same thing happens if I plug it into my x86 Windows 7 machine, or my x64 Windows 7 machine.

MTP and CTP modes both work fine, despite this! I can open up the device in Windows and browse/copy files as normal. But "adb devices" shows nothing at all.

HTC Wildfire S A510e (S-ON, unlocked, rooted, custom Android 2.3.8)
Motorola Defy (red lens, unlocked, rooted, stock Android 2.2, Motoblur)
Archos 101 G9 Turbo ICS (rooted, custom Android 4.0.3)
Motorola Razr i (stock Android 4.1)
HTC One (S-ON, unlocked, rooted stock Android 4.1.2, Sense 5)
