They're called ADMIN because they can do anything. Being the highest user, you can not stop them from doing anything. If you can, that makes you the ADMIN which makes everything a cycle :)

Good luck

Set the database into single user mode so only one connection can access it

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  2. sp_dboption 'databaseName', single, true
  4. Set the database to readonly
  6. sp_dboption 'databaseName', read only, true
that might solve problem..
