Is MBAM a general anti virus and malware tool, or just malware specifi Had some nasty viruses, have I done enough to rid them?

In my experience, MalwareBytes is not adequate. It does not have real time protection (unless you pay for the application).
I recommend Avira. It does have a real time guard (that uses low system resources), and a very high detection rate.
- If you are still having trouble with rootkits, you could always try the standalone program, TDSSKiller.

no MBAM is not meant to be your first and main defense line, its supposed to be a second opinion.
now my opinion about your situation, dont pay for mbam pro unless you have extra cash lying around.
mbam have really unique and high detection rate.its proved by many tests done by individuals and if you get pro ver along with your av thats a really good setup IMO.if not pro, stick to free ver and do a whole system scan once a week.
now as for your AV (your main protection) i think the good ones are:
-Free: Panda cloud AV (of course you need to have internet acces all the time), comodo IS, Avira(avira has low web threat detections and zero-day prevention mechanism)
-Paid: very wide field but i suggest Bitdefender, Bullguard, Emsisoft
-scans you can do weekly/monthly for peace of mind: Emsisoft Free, MBAM Free
-wanna stay safe on the web?: Bitdefender trafficlight addon, Panda URL Filtering <-- both free
hope it helped, be careful out there on the web
