    what windows are you running, xp, win 7? also when you fastboot the phone the drivers will install for fastboot from the phone, with windows 7 they will automactic install itself, and with win xp you have to go to device manager and delete adb android 1.0 than unplug your phone and plug it back in and you should get a promp or install wizard to install drivers.

    reverting back to stock, ok power down the phone and download and extract this to your desktop MetroStockRecovery-SCRIPTS.zip after you done that press and hold vol down, end key and tap power, your phone should be on the white huawei screen and it should stay there, now open the folder that you extracted and run both of these file, first run fastboot-windows you will see a black box come and leave quick, next run metroPCSStock-windows.bat than another black box will pop up and it will do its thing, once it finishes the phone will automatic reboot itself.

    thats strange, did you extract/unzip the folder to your desktop?
    do you have usb debugging on? because adbwinapi.dll is in that metro recovery script file, but if you didnt extract that folder and you tried running the script while its zip than thats maybe one reason you get that error.

    you might want to try this first, uninstall and reinstall drivers http://www.mediafire.com/?j33yo9wy9bspm86

    extract the folder that you downloaded ascend drivers, and open folder and click pc option, than a box should come up to uninstall drivers or transfer files, click uninstall drivers, than click install drivers.
