A non-existent A: drive has suddenly been 'installed'. Can I be rid of this please?

This morning, on switching on my PC (Dell Optiplex 755 on Win 7) I saw a note at the bottom referring to an update or suchlike (I had only just awoken!) and I clicked on it and now find an AL drive has been installed and yet I do not even have an A: drive and I now find that when I want to move files from one drive to another, it stalls as I assume it's trying to find a non-existent drive. In sum, on the list of drives, A: now appears (along with C: and D: (DVD drive)) even though I do not have one. Is there anyway I can remove (or reverse) this please? (I did a system restore to 4 days ago, but the A: is still there. Plus when 'installed' there was a message asking if I wanted to format the A: drive (eh?) and I hit 'cancel')
