I'm new to these forums BTW.
So today, I was using my laptop as I do, I closed chrome, and noticed how slow it had gotten. I right clicked on the taskbar so I could bring up task manager to see if anything was hogging my resources, and my right click wouldn't load! So I turned off my PC, turned it back on again, and it took 10 minutes to boot! It's never been this slow and it's frustrating to open anything or do anything. I think it's a CPU issue as it happened so suddenly, and because the boot process was so slow. Apps barely open, the PC was flying before this. Anyway, if anyone has any ideas on what might be happening, please let me know!
Thank you, goodbye!

That kind of problem is usually software. Try ctrl-alt-del to bring up task manager

Remove the charger and battery then hold the power button for a minute. Then reconnect and boot up (Simple but it saves lives). If that doesn't work, try CCleaner. Free application that'll scan your system for system errors and waste files. Get a good antivirus like malwarebytes. Even if you don't think your computer is infected, sudden sluggishness of your system seems like a sign. Worse comes to worse, factory reset.

I also have the same problem. Its killing me! Every time when i reboot or power on the T430, i am waiting for at least 10 minutes to boot the system. I think that the problem could be a driver. Recently i haved a problem with hign cpu consumation and it was from the modem driver, so i am almost sure that the longer boot is related again with driver issue. PLEASE, give some feedback LENOVO. I reinstalled the system 3 or 4 times, this gives no result, also i have ssd.

Overloading i7-3520m with two applications on startup (nextcloud and eset nod32)? This can't be the problem. Another fact is that my bios is up to date. Like i said, i think the problem is related with some driver. Example: In safe mode boot startup looks ok.
