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!
