You need to add the platform-tools folder to your path.

Open up CMD, and type this...

Code:
set PATH=%PATH%;C:\adt-bundle-windows-x86-20131030\sdk\platform-tools
The name of the main folder for Android may change, but mine is adt-bundle-windows-x86-20131030.
This should get you going.

Fire up CMD again, and type "adb". If you see a string of text scroll through, you are golden.

If you need more help let us know.

Have fun!

OK, I fixed the path to my folder and fixes some typing problems. But I still get the same message.

I'm sorry man, that command we are using only allows it until you close CMD.

This will set you straight.

Take the conents of the platform-tools folder and drop them all in c:/windows/system32 folder and then you can run adb and fastboot from anywhere
