In the CMD box type
cd / (that will put you at the %systemroot% or "C:\")
cd androidsdk/tools (that will put you in the proper folder assuming yours is named appropriately)
dir (to verify that the 3 adb files mentioned in earlier post are in that folder, if not, put them there)
adb devices (that will list any adb devices connected) *Don't forget to have usb debugging turned ON the phone
Now if you see your device (should be the only thing connected), then you're ready to start the root process with whatever method you choose.

Hope that helps.
