In Photoshop CS5, the Profile dropdown menu in "Convert to Profile" gets cut off at the bottom of my screen, so I can't see or access any options beneath U.S. Sheetfed Coated v2. How can I fix this problem? Thanks.

Those are OS menus, so something has changed the OS menu to not scroll or split correctly.

You can try using the Advance Convert To Profile that breaks the menus up into colorspaces.

Thanks so much for your quick response! So if I look at the options in each of those subgroups I'll see all the options shown in the long dropdown menu?

In the advanced convert to profile dialog, the list of profiles is broken down by color mode. If you are converting to CMYK, you only need to select CMYK and see the list of CMYK profiles.

You might also want to see what is messing up normal menu operation on your system. Did you install any utilities that change the appearance or behavior of the system UI?

Certainly not that I know of. I've actually had this problem here and there in other apps but not in a way that I couldn't work around. But usually the problem is that the bottom of the menu is inaccessible (but somewhat visible) under the task bar (in Win7). In this case with PS, the menu drops in front of the task bar and gets cut off at the very bottom of the screen.

The menu should either scroll when you get close to the bottom, or split into multiple vertical lists.

Again, something is off on your system to cause the menu to get cut off and not work correctly with long lists.
