    What about deleting all Wondershare files via Finder or quitting the daemon process in Activity Monitor?

    have you tried deleting using cleanapp or another similar application that finds all files associated with an application before deleting it?

    Those are not effective in removing everything. Best way to FULLY DELETE a program

    Why did you try to delete the ".htaccess" "file"?
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.htaccess

    And what about using Activity Monitor and looking for the Wondershare daemon process.

    Check your Safari extensions and add-ons.

    I did not .. the file I uploaded was just to show the Download icon .. the picture itself is just a youtube video I was looking at .

    EDIT:
    Well.... I have done everything you guys suggested but the freaking " Download" icon remains in every website I visit.

    Here another screen shot

    Remove Free Wondershare Youtube Downloader on Mac

    For all of you who are still seeking the answer on how to remove this "Download" icon, do one of the following after closing Safari:

    * Open the Wondershare Free YouTube Downloader folder in the Applications folder; click Remove Wondershare Free *YouTube Downloader.app and then follow the steps to uninstall the application.

    * If you have uninstalled the application by dragging it to Trash, please put back it from Trash. Then open the Wondershare Free YouTube Downloader folder in the Applications folder; click Remove Wondershare Free YouTube Downloader.app and then follow the steps to uninstall the application.

    * If you have emptied your Trash, please reinstall the application. Then open the Wondershare Free YouTube Downloader folder in the Applications folder; click Remove Wondershare Free *YouTube Downloader.app and then follow the steps to uninstall the application.

    I tested the uninstall and it definitely worked! :)

    I found this thread:
    http://hintsforums.macworld.com/showthread.php?p=602507

    And this line:
    "I presume you installed the AllMyTube application. It puts SIMBL in /Library/InputManagers and adds SIMBL.osax to /Library/ScriptingAdditions. After removing these items, it would probably be best to restart your Mac."

    I found SIMBL.bundle in the directory. I deleted it (after making a copy) and the download icon was gone. Hope it helps.
