I have no choice. There's too much stuff out of my control that requires 
the daily user have admin rights locally.

Plus, we've beeing doing it this way for 15 years, and have never had any 
serious issues.

In our case, they'd be 100% safer because we'd be out of business. If I 
don't keep things working, my replacement will.
