I am deciding which antivirus to purchase and It was either Kaspersky or ESET. I am just wondering If I would need any other AVs to make security better. Or if there is any well recommended system cleaners available? Or even if you would not recommend ESET for another antivirus please let me know I am open to suggestions.

Both are very good. I had Kaspersky for a few years and Eset for a few months. With the right settings, you don't need another app to complement your antivirus. Above all, I would enhance my general security: a secure DNS, a good device backup app like Macrium, backup your photos to the cloud and on external drives, a few good second opinion scanners, a good password manager like Bitwarden..
There are good threads on this forum about Eset and Kaspersky.
For Kaspersky, check this thread:
For cleaning and optimization, check this thread:

Ultimately your behaviour is likely going to determine whether your system remains secure, not which security solution you have. But to answer your question: I'd focus on enhancing ESET itself (heuristics, HIPS, firewall, etc.) rather than adding any additional real-time protection.
