Are you certain Lightroom is applying a preset? When Lightroom first displays raw images it displays the embedded JPEG preview while it generates a preview of the raw data. When the preview is created, the default settings are applied and those default settings are probably different from what the JPEG preview is. You can create your own default settings that are more suitable to your style of photography.
Where can I adjust my own default settings?

Set one of your newly imported raw images that's typical of what you normally photograph to look the way you want newly imported images to look. Then in the Develop module go to the Develop menu and choose the option to set default settings. Whatever settings you have applied to that image will now become part of the default settings that will be applied when images are imported. Those settings will also be applied when you click on the reset button.
But why did it change? How was it before? I want the setting I used to have the last years. Where did it go? Why was it replaced?
I don't know. Did you recently update or upgrade? Have you ever customized your camera defaults? Have you purchased a new camera recently? There are different defaults for every camera model. Have you reset your defaults? What version of Lightroom are you using? What exact version (not just the latest)? When did you start seeing this "problem"? Has anything changed on your computer?
In my case to create the look it used to have i need to do contrast completely down. -100
if i make this my new default setting that would mean that i could never go down more with contrast.
Means i want my preset like it was. with everything in -0-.
and the way it looked like a week ago.
Well, you have started another thread. I don't know what it is you are doing. But I don't think I have any suggestions that will help you. You will have to figure this one out on your own are getting help from others.
