Missing Drivers, Can't Connect To Computer?

Hey! I'm brand new to Arduino, just got the starer kit for christmas and I'm pumped about it.

However, I've followed every tutorial online and nothing seems to be working. I go to the device manager to update the drivers, connect the path to the arduino driver folder and it comes up saying windows can't find any drivers.
I've restarted my computer, updated it, tried every USB port, redownloaded Arduino, deleted the device and tried again, tried downloading the drivers from else where with no success.

I'm at loss right now and just hoping I missed an obvious step.

Hi,

If your Arduino is a clone then you may need the drivers from CH341SER.ZIP - 南京沁恒微电子股份有限公司

It's in Chenese buy if you click on the blue square in the CH341SER.ZIP box then it'll download.

This worked for mine on a Win10 64 bit PC.
