Yes 22.214.171.124 is the latest version of NIS. I believe you probably got McAfee Security Scan bundled with some other software you downloaded. It is not necessary to have this along with NIS. I would recommend that you uninstall McAfee Security Scan and run the McAfee removal tool just to make sure it is gone.
Please see the following thread:
Hope this helps.

Hi Allen and thanks for your reply.
No, it was a separate download. I just wanted to test it. And what a test!
First, in the Virus and Spyware Protection section it says that NIS is out of date, then in the Firewall Protection section NIS is up to date and working properly.
But there's more! The McAfee Web Protection section is on green light which means that McAfee SiteAdvisor is also up to date and working properly. Not entirely true. In Firefox 5 and 6 "SiteAdvisor has been disabled due to security or stability issues". And I'm using Firefox everywhere. So, for me, McAfee Web Protection is... not.
OK! Enough said! I'll try MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpyware too.

Please be sure to uninstall any McAfee security software you have on your computer. And then run the McAfee removal tool as I mentineod earlier.

Then you can also check for any left over folders even after running the removal tool as Allen suggests. Thanks.
Success always occurs in private and failure in full view.

I just came back to view your image - it had to be approved by a moderator first before anyone can see it.
I have to say, that actually does look like a Marketing thing from McAfee IMHO. SendOfJive mentioned this in the thread I referenced earlier and I have to say I agree after seeing the image.
In either case, rest assured your NIS is up to date.

So? Was it approved?
Anyway, I hope there will be no more problems with my NIS copy cos I don't want your help anymore.
Was what approved? The image you posted when you started this thread? If so I already commented on that.
There was no problems with your NIS, just McAfee giving you improper information. And I explained how to uninstall it and run McAfee's removal tool.

As was said in Court during the Profumo trial when an "Escort" was asked why a witness had said something defensively ...
"They would, wouldn't they?"
What do you expect McAfee to say about Norton?
Of course here we tell the trurth .....

Norton Internet Security Online is an offering from NetZero. Is that what you have installed? When you look in WIndows Add/Remove Programs, what Norton product(s) do you see listed?
