Default [Q] Unable to Update Recovery

My phone has an older version of TWRP and I want to update it so that I can update to Viper Sense 6.0 and I can not do so. I believe I need to reinstall adb and fastboot drivers, how would I go about that (where can I find the correct drivers)? I am on Windows 8.1.

Download the newest twrp image to your phone. Then go to the market and download flashify. It's a free app and it will flash the image for you from your phone. Worked perfect for me on my DNA. It's one way to just avoid using a computer to flash an image. Try that and report back.

Try installing PDAnet, it's installed some blanket drivers that have helped me out of recognition issues in the past!
