Default Original RAW file changes saved with Adobe Camera Raw when save as JPEG

I see this result:

Step-1): Open my .CR2 RAW File in Adobe Camera Raw 5.0.
Step-2). Make some adjustments to Exposure, Brightness, etc and click on Save Image button at bottom left, Choose JPEG format and save it as a JPEG file in the same location.

Noticed that the changes are saved to the original RAW file too. Instead I want to have the same settings As Shot to the .CR2, but only the JPEG file should have the adjustments made. Any help appreciated.

There are no changes made to the actual raw file data. The changes are written as exif data to an xmp file. These changes can easily be reversed and the raw file restored to the "as shot" condition.

In Bridge select: Edit > Develop Settings > Clear Settings

Just a heads up. Current release level of ACR is 5.3.
