Macbeth question?

Lady Macbeth says that the ghost of Banquo is of the same nature as the dagger Macbeth saw leading him to Duncan. How does she characterize Macbeth's weakness in this regard? How does she seek to push him from it?

I'm having a very hard time with this question, for anyone who has read Macbeth, please help me out.
It'd be much appreciated.
Thank you.
