WSUS 3 and the clean up tool

First of all, is there any need to run the clean up tool (found here http://wsus.codeplex.com) if you have WSUS 3 installed ?

If so how do i run the application? ive ran the following command:

 wsus_cleanup_cl.exe servername t 80

and i recie the error below :

Running with the following parameters:
Server Name: servername
Using SSL: t
Using Port: 80
The type initializer for 'Microsoft.UpdateServices.Internal.Constants' threw an
exception.


Unhandled Exception: System.Security.SecurityException: The source was not found
, but some or all event logs could not be searched.  Inaccessible logs: Security

achineName, Boolean readOnly)
   at System.Diagnostics.EventLog.SourceExists(String source, String machineName
