Unhappy Problem with TWRP. PLEASE HELP!

So i bought this HTC EVO 4G LTE off ebay, well it has a huge problem that the seller did not tell me about. It has somehing called TWRP installed and I cannot do anything with this phone.
I cannot get past this screen weird twrp screen thingy. i would post a picture but I can't. it's grey and has a bunch of options. it's like a main menu
I have tried to figure this out and to be honest i have no idea what i'm even doing

You're rooted. Run RUU tool to unroot and go back to complete stock. TWRP is the recovery menu and the gateway to flashing new roms and kernels etc.

Okay so i downloaded and unzipped, The instructions on the thread are very vague
So I think i need to use a backdoor or something cause I can't get my phone to boot into android

Q: But what if I can't get into Android?? Surely there is something I can do!?
A: Yes, I designed a "backdoor" to allow you into VipeRUU. However, BE CAREFUL! This skips important checks that VipeRUU does when it start (most importantly, if your phone really is an EVO 4G LTE!) but it will allow you to do this procedure from the bootloader. All you have to do is create a text file in the "files" folder called "bypass.txt" and then start the program. You'll be alerted with a few warnings when doing this.

Also do I need to have the phone plugged into the computer or something. I am so sorry but I am very lost

I've never done this process myself, but I'll do my best to help you.

First: reboot into your bootloader, Hold down power key with volume down key until it reboots into the screen where you listed all that information. It should have a white bacground.

Second: Naviagte to fastboot and hit the pwoerkey

Third: Connect computer to phone with usb

Fourth: create a blank bypass.txt file and place into the file named "file" from the zip you downloaded.

Fifth: Run ViperRUU and select whichever option you need.

Are you running windows? Open up a command prompt and try to get su access through fastboot. You may not have high enough privleges. Also, do you have HTC drivers installed? Once you're inside the fastboot menu, don't touch anything. The reading on the top should say "Fastboot USB"

I do have windows and I know how to open a command prop

What is su access?

I'm sure I do since i'm the administrator, I have no idea about the drivers. The ones in the files folder I installed those I think

I am so sorry for all the trouble I really appreciate your help
