Go to manager and then device manager. Then click on the device and manually update the drivers you should be able to pick a driver. Find on that says android adb and install it. then see if it works fine not then try another adb driver. I have a bunch on my computer from all the devices I have. Also have you tried my driver install it is part of this tool.

"Not Found

The requested URL /rootjunkysdl.com/getdownload.php was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."
