Default "ADB server didn't ACK; failed to start daemon" HELP!

Hi all,
First let me start by saying that I've been trying to get past this for the last 2 days. I just bought a nexus 10 (YAY!), However when i try to root it via skipsoft toolkit, i get the above error code...

Ive done the ctrl+shift+del and stopped any running adb processes, I've switched usb ports, and cannot figure this out. Am i missing a completely obvious step here? I've rooted many items using rhe same computer, and same type of toolkits offered by Mark... Any help would be truly appreciated!
Cheers,

Well its a nexus, toolkits are from needed
fastboot oem unlock
All data is wiped here, now make a choice for stock rooted or custom rom, but youre on xda so next steps
fastboot flash recovery nameofrecovery.img
Now reboot to new recovery (twrp is a good choice)
And flash rom and or any gapps here
If none on device, which after unlock i doubt it, use an otg cable or adb sideload
Then reboot, all takes 5min tops

For your adb issue make sure you update your sdk, then open cmd/terminal and type
adb kill server
adb start server
If you just want stock rooted or cant find needed files let me know
Happy flashing
