Login to Windows via a USB key?

I am looking for a program that allows me to login to any user on my computer via a USB. This means that I also get an option to insert my USB key when I am asked to select the user normally. Requirements: - [tag:gratis] (aka free) - Not replace the standard Windows login screen, it should be an *extra* icon or similar - **Must** lock the computer as soon as the USB is taken out (possibly a short delay of 10-20 seconds) - Runs on Windows 7 (64 bit) - Gives you the option to type in a short 4-6 digit pin on insertion Bonuses (not required!): - Logs into the account that corresponds to the pin (above) - Emergency password if the pin (above) is not remembered - Doesn't require the USB to be completely emptied / formatted - Allows the USB to be in any format (eg. NTFS not FAT32)
