Driver crash after closing the Darktide

I have been having an issue after updating my driver to AMD 22.11.1 from 22.10.1. I am only able to roll back to 22.5.1, but come across the same issue now with that driver as well.

If I close Darktide by using the menu to quit, if it crashes to desktop, or if I alt-F4, or end task from the control panel. I will have anywhere from 10 seconds to a minute before my screens freeze and become unresponsive. Windows is still running fine in the background as I can play sounds or Win-X, U, R to restart my computer. Once my computer restarts, windows has overwritten my driver and I have to reinstall the AMD driver. I have tried to replicate this with several other games that I own but I am not able to.

I have cleaned out the drivers in safe mode and done a clean install to no avail.
I have blocked windows update from being able overwrite the driver. (doesn’t work)
I have cleared out the driver cache.
I have clean installed Darktide.
After exiting Darktide I have even rush restarted my PC. It restarts fine, but then after 10 seconds to a minute in windows it will do the driver crash again.

I was hoping that the latest patch would help, but it has not. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

This is from control panel end task.

This is a localised issue and I’d rather be honest in that we may not be able to help with this, but I’ve raised it with our developers nonetheless.

It appears that this has resolved itself after the full release patch. Unfortunately I was unable to find out on my end what was the cause. There definitely was something within the beta client that was causing this though.
