Woah.

You have two choices:

1) Research which user is using the db (might turn out to be you, since SQL sometimes "remembers" past activity :-) ), figure out if it's vital, how to re-do whatever is being done, etc..

2) Forcibly set the db into multi_user mode, forcibly cancelling whatever the current user is doing:

ALTER DATABASE db SET MULTI_USER WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE
