Default [Q] In TWRP with no ROM/Backup - Device Manager not finding adb device

Hello. I managed to accidently check the "data" box when wiping my phone. I have been in this situation before with my old GNex. I just sideloaded a ROM with ADB. However, I have run into a roadblock. In "Device Manager", it is just showing my G2 as LG-VS980, not ADB device. I have ADB working and I think it must be something with my drivers. I have downloaded the G2 drivers and the Google Drivers (not sure what they are but someone said that they did and it helped) but nothing changed.

I am not sure what to do once I download the drivers. Is there and exe somewhere in the files? When I try to "Update Drivers" in "Device Manager" i browse to my downloads folder and it can't find anything. Can someone offer some insight on this? Thanks in advance.
