Default trojan horse / internet bandwidth

does it require a lot of bandwidth of a connection for a trojan horse to establish quick screen-surveillancing? and usually how much?

how do you check if the connection is slowed down?

alright thx
so can a trojan be downloaded by simply going to a website, and downloaded in less than like half a minute and then already begins functioning?
thx again

Trojans can be acquired by visiting infected links, usually porn sites, and by clicking on links from emails and IMs. Most trojans are small, maybe 5kbs, so yes, they can be downloaded extremely fast, and activate fast, especially if they're based in Java, in which most are.
