Task bar is unreliable/freezes

Whenever I choose to auto hide the task bar, and it is hidden, notifications will not display unless it is being in focus. They will also not disappear/automatically close if it’s not in focus.
The task bar also freezes frequently whenever playing a game and focusing another application, such as alt+tab into a browser. It remains frozen until the game is closed.

I don’t know what other logs I should submit.

Isn’t this driver a Beta version? :

driver: nvidia v: 555.58

Beta drivers are not yet ready for release, as they are in the last stages of development, and can cause unexpected behaviour.
