Failed to download minecraft resource


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

Failed to download http://resources.download.minecraft.net/ad/ad7d770b7fff3b64121f75bd60cecfc4866d1cd6

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 have Kaspersky as well, and even though its in the exclusions list its still not allowed. I just had to temporarily turn of protection during downloads and updates so that it would work

    Same issue as others. I have tried disabling Microsoft Security Essentials and added the program as an exception. Also, set to allow for firewall.

    I have found one way to fix it! If you have Kaspersky , turn off protection , run modpack, then turn back on protection should fix it! :) You might have to trust Technic and everything Minecraft in your Firewall and Internet anti-virus before you turn protection off, then back on. So far it has been working I haven't restarted my computer, and then tried running a modpack without turning protection off and on again. Hopefully this helped you guys and girls! :D

    Hello! To anyone with the same problem as me, I HAVE FOUND THE SOLUTION! I would download the mod pack and then press play and the launcher would basically blink. Your problems might finally have come to an end my friend. I found this solution on reddit. I did not write this:

    Your global java options are set to force all VMs to use a max size of 512MB. You can fix it by doing this:
    Click start, right-click on "Computer", and select "Properties".
    A control panel window will open, then click "Advanced System Settings" in the top left.
    A small window titled "System Properties" will open, then click "Environment Variables" in the bottom right.
    An even smaller window titled "Environment Variables" will open, then find the list at the top labeled "Environment variables for ".
    Scroll through the list until you see "_JAVA_OPTIONS".
    Double click it, and a tiny window will appear titled "Edit User Variable".
    In the field labeled "Variable value", search through and remove any java options specifying memory settings (-Xmx or -Xms). There may only be "-Xmx512M", in which case just empty all the text in the field.
    Press "OK" in the edit, then press "OK" in the variables window, then press "OK" in the system properties window.
    Restart minecraft and the launcher if they are open, and then everything should work!
    If this does not fix it, then you may have (somehow) gotten _JAVA_OPTIONS as a system variable, which is not hard to fix. Sorry if it seems like I am baby-stepping you through this, it is because you can easily break your system by editing the wrong variables. The last person I tried to help do this couldn't find the java options and wanted to go delete all the other variables, including PATH, COMSPEC, TEMP, and WINDIR, all of which your computer needs to run.
    EDIT: Also are you running mods or anything? 8GB ram seems like a lot, I run vanilla at 1.5G and mods and 2-2.5G.
