The error is occurring because there is an application or process which has a lock on the databases in question. SQL is preventing the restore from being performed as SQL cannot gain total access on the databases. You should see errors from SQL in the application log on your SQL server.

Determine what application or process is accessing the database and stop the process from running when you attempt the restore.
