I use Brave web browser, NOT IE or CHROME or FIREFOX or any others that regulate and filter your search criteria. Brave works well, it automatically blocks ads and filters out junk, and saves bandwith. I've been using Brave for just a couple months now, and it shows at this moment that it has blocked 30,283 ads and saved 1.71 GB of data transfer with a total time saved on web pages of 26 minutes.
To go to Brave web site, click here
if you want to down-load a new browser that works well, is not controlled by Microsoft and does not return ads.
Also, use DuckDuckGo as your search engine, and you'll have the best of both. Click here
I don't see the ads you are talking about.
Now, occasionally an ad will pop through, but never as an overlay on something else. No special hardware needed, and you can control the "settings" on both Brave and DuckDuckGo.
