Windows 7: Constant bluescreens after new build

More often now, the computer shows graphical corruption, then just restarts instead of showing a blue screen. Sometimes when it does show a blue screen, it has this message:
Dump file size too small - requires at least 592732275 bytes.
Future kernel memory dumps may require larger size.
Switching to minidump...

I don't know if it's related, but when the computer starts up and shows the desktop, the mouse and keyboard become unresponsive for a few seconds.

I attached a dump from just before I put it in safe mode.
No BSOD in safe mode and BSOD in normal boot = a driver used in normal boot but not safe (ie video, networking, etc)

I did also notice some known BSOD causing things (like super adware blocker?) but they dont seem to be involved.

I had it in Safe Mode with Networking, so it must have loaded the networking drivers.
SuperAntiSpyware? I only got it for its Repair broken Network Connection (WinSock LSP Chain) function.

I emailed AMD support about my processor, because I can't find ATI support for my video card. I also attached all the mindumps since the last one. There seem to be a lot of 0x0000000a hardware errors now.

The majority of these were related to your hotspotshield and taphss.sys. I would remove it.

I uninstalled HotSpot Shield and started getting a bunch of Peer Name Resolution Protocol and Peer Networking Grouping service errors in Event Viewer, but managed to fix it.

Then I still got a bunch more blue screens (attached). I finally figured out how to use Windbg. Before, I was using a command prompt, which was tedious. Much easier with the GUI .
I see two new errors: "amdppm.sys" is probably related to my CPU, and "MijXfilt.sys" is for connecting my PS3 controller.

Code:
BugCheck A, {4d16, d, 1, fffff800032aafd5}

Probably caused by : amdppm.sys ( amdppm!C1Halt+2 )

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for MijXfilt.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for MijXfilt.sys
Probably caused by : MijXfilt.sys ( MijXfilt+394b )

KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (1e)
This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.

Good going. If you are interested in learning BSOD's PM me.

Meanwhile update the two drivers you found.

I didn't have a BSoD all day

I think it might have been CPU, RAM, and HT Link frequencies set in the BIOS. If I loaded Failsafe defaults, the CPU FSB Frequency would be at 200, but when I would restart it would have automatically increased to 240 and I couldn't change it. This would overclock all the other frequencies.

So I wrote down all the Failsafe Default frequencies, and when it restarted I decreased all the ratios to try to match the previous values. Hopefully this has really fixed it.

Update: No bluescreens for 5 days. It was either the DRAM Frequency or the HT Link Frequency being auto-overclocked in the BIOS.
