    This seems to be system-wide... when a file finishes downloading via a browser or LimeWire, I get "Downloads Complete: All files have finished downloading." pop up in the upper-right corner of my screen. This annoys me and I'm wondering if there is any way to deactivate it.

    I'm running 10.5.8

    This definitely sounds like a Growl notification. You can adjust the settings for individual apps in the Other section of System Preferences, or turn it off completely if you wish.

    Yep... I installed growl on recommendation while installing another app and didn't know what it was. I'll disable it on startup. What is it anyway?

    It's a notification system. I use it for Adium and Last.FM to see my last scrobbled tracks and new messages from friends.
