I was having a similar issue, but once I formatted my internal memory, the computer and both sony companion recognized my device. Sometimes, it delays to load the device. Then, here's something I do which works marvellously! Click and hold the lower volume key (the below one of volume keys) while and after connecting the USB port. Hope it helps you...

first of all, do u have the same problems as i mentioned above? like going into the device manager & getting that yellow exclamation?
if yes, then run the exe which you downloaded. i hope you have backed up everything before this step!
now restart your computer & connect the phone thru usb.
i think pc will still be unable to detect your phone. then go to device manager. right click on the semc hsusb option (the one with yellow exclamation) -> update driver -> advanced -> then browse till the folder "x86" as shown in the 1st image above. click next. now all the necessary files are available & the drivers will be installed.
waiting for your feedback...

by "formatted my internal memory" do you mean factory reset?
checkout my reply to smoky.jr if you couldnt do the necessary.
hope that permanently solves your problem.

the thing is....problem's not with the computer...and by formatting, i just mean formatting internal memory from settings>storage>clear internal memory....so now only things stored on internal memory will be lost....not phone memory (like in factory reset it wud be)....if you follow this step, your fone will be recognized in every computer u further try....if it doesn't work, try pressing and holding the decrease volume key while and after inserting the USB cable...
