New GeForce driver conflicts with the game?

Platform: PC/Steam

Steps To Reproduce: Just playing the game and the game froze. Crash report started but got stuck and never finished. SEE VIDEO OF WHAT THIS LOOKED LIKE

I have just updated my NVIDIA GeForce driver to the newest version that dropped today. Don’t know if following problem is related to this or not.

Had to do a cold restart of my computer as I could not switch windows to the task manager. Mouse did not respond either. The second time it froze after a very short gameplay again, I managed to restart the computer using the restart option in the Ctrl-Alt-Del blue window that I could open. Upon doing so the computer boots normally but shows me this window after having looged in to my account:

My Win 10 is in Swedish, but what it basically says is that the diagnostic tool for DirectX had failed when using DirectInput, asking me to skip that part of the diagnostic run.
