Ctrl+P Password protecting excel document

Good morning,
Got a weird one where one of our financial guys when he presses CTRL+P instead of printing the document password protects it, however I cannot find where it is.

Apparently my colleague has already tried removing add-ins, starting in safe-mode and checking that there are no VBA scripts in and nothing seems to be installed but it still happens.

Apparently my colleague has also tried uninstalling and re-installing Microsoft office and the problem still exists. The solution we have at the moment is to re-install windows completely, but obviously this is a last resort.

Does anyone  have any suggestions of where this CTRL+P would be hiding where I haven't looked yet?

Thank you

did you check the keyboard?  when you press P in notepad. does it give P? or any other letter?
you can also run the below macro to reset the Control P

Sub test()
    Application.OnKey "^p"
End Sub

Immediate Window:

Application.EnableEvents = FALSE

See if Ctrl+P does anything then.

If the workbook is on a server, what happens when you try it?  If it's on your colleague's PC, can he send it to you to see what happens when you try it on your PC?
