    While rooting that device is not complicated, more info is needed. Build number, Android version...

On my phone it said updating firmware and to not unplug the usb cable. Well than it had some error message on the computer and my phone just sat there and never got off 0% then i was like oh $@!# i bricked my phone!!!! Luckly i took the battery out and put it back in. Everything is the way it was, but im still not rooted!!!

    Well, first is it a desktop or a laptop?

    Usb 2.0 has no markings usually while 3.0 has lightning bolt looking markings.

    If it's a desktop use the ports in the back. Don't use a hub if you are.
    Also while on the downloading screen do you see any yellow exclamation points or question marks in device manager?

    That looks like a gui script. I would look at the link i sent you and use the manual method.

    You can find or change the com port under device manager. Copy and paste the commands if need be. It should work. I don't like using scripts that can't be unpacked as you won't see what went wrong.

    Im kind of scared to do it manually. What if i add an extra space or accidentally put an extra letter in or type the wrong thing? Will it screw up my phone? Or worse, brick it? Im not a tech expert by any means. Btw, i really appreciate you helping me out man.

    If you enter the command incorrectly, the worst it could do is tell you the command is invalid. Unless you screw with the command and make it do something other than what you wanted.

    Update. I tried the one click script method and the root bat file is nowhere to be seen. I believe this is why it's failing. What is a root bat and where can i get it? The guy in the video said you need that file.
