Require a device to log in
Is it possible to make Windows require a device, instead of a password at log
ins? (pretty much have a flash drive BE the password to log in)

I can carry the device with me, so, no one can hack in (by guessing my
password) and I wouldn't have to type anything. In case I do lose my device,
I can hide a password reset device somewhere around the house.

any help is appreciated

You might be able to use BitLocker, if you are using Vista Ultimate.
