    I can't see what you see because of my location i think. But solution is ;

    - login to  google webmaster tool
    - add your both www and non-www site
    - define rule for which one is primary.
    - see wrong indexed pages and suggest correction.

    at your site  ;

    create a robots.txt file and add your unwanted url's to it  like this ;
    (aboutus.html is example dont forget to delete it )
    User-agent: *
    Allow: /
    Disallow: /aboutus.html

    Open in new window

    and lastly be sure you are using the latest version of wordpress and check if .htaccess file is updated
