You can use basic auth with the Winbind helpers. This will allow you
to use the usernames and passwords in your Windows domain, but users
will be prompted by their browsers for their login information.

Then you probably didn't build the helper support into Squid (using
the appropriate --enable options to configure), see configure --help
for a list of options.

What does squid -v give as output?
