Hi,
all OFX plugin are missed in my Tools menu.
If I open a comp with OFX plugin inside, an error appear:

"The following tools could not be loaded"

and in Console appears messages like:

"unknown tool found".

All OFX are in the right windows path but...today, at opening, Fusion welcomed me at this manner :(
Any idea?

Are you using Avast antivirus?

In the last few days many people noted that Avast started treating OpenFX.plugin as a virus and delete file.

Yes...I use Avast
but all OFX plugins aren't deleted and my C:\Program Files\Common Files\OFX\Plugins is full of plugins and testing Fusion disabling avast...not solved.

How to control plugins path?

The way I solved it was:

I uninstalled Avast
I installed Microsoft antivirus
I reinstalled Fusion

and everything was working fine again. All OFX plugins reappeared in Fusion.

This happened 2 days ago. No problem since then.

Is a bit drastic but...is a solution, thanks.
Before I want to try other workarounds just because avast is a good sentinel.
If someone solved in other manner is welcomed.

the scanner probably didn't delete ofx plugins themselves but Fusion's ofx.plugin. A file in fusion's program directory. hence the need to reinstall.

(see maxic's post)

Yes avast puts them usually in a chest. You can re-create them from there and set an exception to not treat it as a virus.
