Squeaky Noise when starting engine

Hey Guys.
I have a ANNOYING issue with my engine when I start it for the first time in the day. Its like a squeaky noise coming from the belt I think when the engine is cold but after I let it idle till the engine temp is normal at 240 or w.e. is normal the noises stop. I tried the stupid spray stuff, that product is BS. it actually made it worse. rofl. so yea. can anyone help me out on how to stop the squeaky noise? I already know it goes away when the engine warms up do what could this mean?

I had that issue about 1 month ago. 1 - you need to replace your belt. 2 - Make sure that you have it tight enough on the tension adjuster bolt. It took multiple adjustments on my part to get it tight enough that the squeaking went away. Runs like a champ now.

Replace the belt. Pretty self explanatory.
