    Welcome to the forums. Please, take a look at this thread for possible solutions. Tell us how it goes.

    Odd "screen overlay" pop up shows up often with some apps, what is it and how to properly select it?

    Try settings, applications, application manager and then in the upper right corner select more. From there, select "Apps. that can appear on top", see if the application you are looking for are listed there and turn them off.

    Try booting into safe mode first, then try to see if you can change the settings.
