NOTES:
If you cannot install the driver in your pc, you must try in another pc with Windows 7, the best OS to lead with mediatek smartphones. If you still dont have another pc to try a shot, install a virtual machine with VMware workstation (https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/details?downloadGroup=WKST-1007-WIN&productId=362&rPId=8482) and install a Windows 7 with 32bits, and repeat this tutorial on your pc running your vitual machine. For more information check this tutorial on how to use a virtual machine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w591rYXjl7g
If you are not familiar with using virtual machines, to remove and add devices you should go to the upper left corner and choose Player >> Removable Devices and you will see all the devices you have connected to your pc and what devices are connected to your virtual machine. You cannot use a device at the same time on both sides (virtual machine + your physical pc).

This process was used by me using a virtual machine with windows 7 86x.
