i just replaced my v belt (ps, ac, alt), but now every time i start a car a loud sound comes on for around a minute and then it stops. the sound is really lound and embarrasing sometimes, so please guys help me out on this one.

uh wd40 will break down your rubber belts.
your not supposed to ever spray anything on your belts. not even that belt dresser crap.

It is probably a tension issue and nothing more. Start with the simple things.
Adjust the tension so there is no more than 1/2" of belt deflection.
