Is there any relatively resource light apps that does the job without constantly being bothered by popups and updates? 

I'm thinking about purchasing Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, does it do the job by itself?
 

Thanks

  Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Emsisoft Anti-Malware, SUPERAnti-Malware programs have their real time scanners and updaters.  I have all three, and they "take turns" having real time shields on; all have scheduled scans to run sporadically during the week.

  If you're also considering anti-virus sutes:  AVG, Avast, Avira, BitDefender are just a few of available anti-virus programs.  The three As also are available as Internet Suites, however, I only have 2 of the 3 As s AV programs, taking turns, running scheduled scans sporadically during the week.

There is no universal "one size fits all" solution that works for everyone and there is no single best anti-virus. Just like with anti-virus programs...there is no universal "one size fits all" solution that works for everyone and there is no single best anti-malware solution to supplement your existing security protection. Every vendor's virus lab and program scanning engine is different. Each has has its own strengths and weaknesses and they often use a mix of technologies to detect and remove malware. In many cases choosing an anti-virus is a matter of personal preference and what works best on a particular system. You may need to experiment and find the one most suitable for your needs. Please read:My personal recommendation is ESET NOD32 Anti-Virus or Emsisoft Anti-Malware as they leave a small footprint...meaning they are not intrusive and do not utilize a lot of system resources.

See my comments in Supplementing your Anti-Virus Program with Anti-Malware Tools as to why I recommend Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium and Emsisoft Anti-Malware.

Thanks Global and Roland. Very instructive posts.
Maybe a setup with ESET NOD32 and Malwarebytes Pro should be enough. 

By the way, Emsisoft Anti-Malware claims to be all-in-one solution (antivirus+antimalware). Is it enough?

Yes but I still use Malwarebytes Premium along with it for extra protection.

The best security is the user that control the computer end of story.

...and the middle line is a good set of antivirus, antimalware utilities  :)

You don't really need an antivirus unless you are stupid clicking and installing stuff on the internet, some people don't even have 3rd party antivirus but use Windows defender nor don't need one, and their PC is malware free.

Paid AVG, free Malwarebytes, and careful browsing didn't stop me from picking up malware, from an infected website. I now have paid Malwarebytes, and Malwarebytes antiexploit.

Even legitimate web sites and the ads they display can be a source of infection...exploit kits and drive-by downloads.
