Failed to download minecraft resource

Many users are unable to play a modpack due to this error or similar:

Failed to download

This is due to an anti-virus or firewall blocking the download. Please make sure the Technic Launcher is added as an exception to your anti-virus program.

    I just got a new computer for Christmas, and Technic was working completely fine, until I factory reset my computer (to test if a problem it was having was a software or hardware problem). But I reinstalled everything correctly, but now every time I run a modpack, when the launcher closes, instead of Minecraft popping up, the launcher pops back up with no error message or anything.

    When I load up my tekkit launcher on my mac book its just a logo in the middle of my screen doing nothing. It just sits there and does nothing, I can't even interact with it.

    I have the same issue as everyone else, I have excluded it from my firewall and uninstalled my antivirus, but nothing has changed!

    I have a friend who is also having this issue with the technic launcher, with any pack. They can't even install vanilla through technic. They don't have or use Kapersky or whatever people keep talking about, and they have no anti-virus except for windows defender.
