Thank you for the comments about Default settings I looked at one of Julieanne Kost Adobe tutorials on the subject and have set the camera calibration to Neutral which is what I shoot most of the time and set this as my default. Images are coming in a lot more as shot. I have left the D lighting setting on medium in camera as after a couple of test exposures this seems to make little difference.

I fail to see the reason for enabling Active D-Lighting when shooting RAW and using a third-party software to process your photos.  Perhaps this discussion will help you understand why it isn't necessarily a good decision to do so:
