You can't delete something from showing up on a search.

To delete your forum Go to your ACP >>
General tab >>
   Forum >> Forum Deletion Type the Word DELETE in all capps in the box then hit the delete button the system will then send you a Email to click a link to do the last step.
then your done
NOTE: your forum will still be on the Google and bing search for some time and we may also have your forum on our search system for upto 48hrs but your forum will be gone on the main server.

He doesn't want to delete his forum, those are the same forums above, one is to his forum index and one is to a specific forum.

There isn't anything we can really do I'm afraid. You can't block one link form a search engine without damaging your forum SEO overall. Its actually a good thing you have multiple links on google.

EDIT: You could hide the forum forum from guests. That's the only easy way. The link will then disappear from google after time.
