1) Maybe try logging out and back in again.  Maybe there’s a stale process 
which is blocking the GUI from starting.
Also, it might be possible that you have a bad preference file—I’ve experienced 
issues with those on various vintages of Mac OS for about 20 years. 
Unfortunately, I don’t happen to know right off the top of my head where the 
GUI puts that.  Someone else here should know.

2) That’s strictly up to you to decide.
