Look at the following link:
The plugin has added many error pages to the website.

d00d, WordPress automatically hides /wp-includes/, /wp-admin/, and other areas from robots. This isn’t a problem – you don’t want people there.
The challenge is that the plugin is creating many links to the hidden area automatically.
For every single blog, flare plugin has created a link to the admin area of our website and it misleads search engines.
The link that I have placed is the Google result of all fake links.

Seems coldad is correct.
Found this in the source of his site and mine.
var __flare_count_url = "http://replacementwindowsanddoors.com/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=flare_get_counts&url=http%3A%2F%2Freplacementwindowsanddoors.com%2Fsiding%2F&post_id=6&_wpnonce=8192ff948c";
I added Noindex: /wp-admin/ to my robots.txt.
That should keep those pages out of the search results.
