A Windows native Negotiate (Kerberos) helper is included in official
Squid sources starting from Squid 2.6 STABLE 1.

Just download the latest 2.7 binaries for Windows

squid to use the mswin_negotiate_auth.exe helper for negotiate auth
schema, no options are required, it works just out of the box.
