zigzag, i had actually changed the driver to driver.sys which windows lists as a suitable driver for my CPU, to try to rule out or fix the problem with AMDPPM with no change in BSODs

If you change it to driver.bak it cant load

i changed them all to processor.sys and rebooted then checked the loaded drivers to verify the processor cores were all using processor.sys and they were, no AMDPPM in sight and it still crashes

Changed "them"? which them? If you leave the extension *.sys it can still load and will.

If after changing them to *.bak it is still crashing upload the DMP files

i did that before the recent reformatting.. but its not crashing anymore today.. its stopped so it wont crash again until tomorrow morning.. so before i go to sleep for tonight ill switch them to processor.sys and rename the amdppm.sys.. and by "them" the processor shows up as four processors in the device manager, so i have to change them all over

well, i did what was suggested.. changed all my processor drivers over to processor.sys from amdppm.sys and renamed amdppm.sys so it wouldnt load.. computer has been on for a few hours for today, and no BSOD as of yet.. ill give it a few days before reporting it a success though

if AMDPPM was really the culprit, should i just continue to use processor.sys, or is there a better alternative to amdppm.sys i could use?
