Grease will attack the rubber of the belt, allow the belt to slip and not drive the pulleys that need power (for instance, causing the water pump NOT to pump for a while), and eventually, turn to varnish on the pulleys and belt causing MORE squealing. Buy some "belt dressing". It removes varnish and reduces squeal, while keeping the pulleys turning.
