"Yellow Filter" to Imported Photos in LR 5.3

I am having an issue with my images coming up with what looks to be a yellow filter over the photograph. When I import the pictures the "Apply During Import" box to the right has all options defaulted to "None." "Import Preset" at the bottom is also set to "None." Once the import is complete The thumbnails in the bottom of Lightroom show up just fine. When I click on them to view them in Loupe view (in the library or the develop module) they come up nicely and then get the "yellow looking filter" applied to them. I can then choose one image and change the White Balance from "Custom" to either "As Shot" or "Auto." Then I use the one image to Sync with the rest of the photos that I had imported. This isn't terrible, but it's just a pain and something that never happened before. I have tried to research some forums and it seems that people mention something to do with the video card or something, but I doubt this is the issue since they look fine after I change the white balance. Thanks!

If the WB is on custom, you may have changed the default settings. In Develop, go to Develop menu > Set Default Settings and press the Restore Adobe Defaults button. Then see if they look correct on your next import.

Hi Victoria,
It's been a while since I have pictures to import (sadly), but you are 100% correct. I went in and restored the defaults and the problem was solved!

Thank you for your help and time!
