One thing I would advise that you do now is to create a new (password protected) admin user so that if you do get problems with the user accounts in use that are not fixable with a re-boot at least you have a way to access the OS.
Personally I would activate the Hidden administrator account Now, (with a secure password), just in case
Experience has taught me that putting off an intermittent, minor annoyance, can sometimes escalate into something a lot worse so even if you do not have the time to fix things now at least put in a recovery plan
