Absolutely, you have identified the cause of the problem, but you need a live person to see which pulley is tipped or turned. That will dictate the needed repair. Any pulley that is tipped or turned enough to cause the belt to run off-center on the next pulley by as little as 1/16" can set up a horrendous squeal since the belt will slide across the pulley as it goes around it. Much more than that and the belt will start to shred on one side.
Typically the generator and power steering pump are fixed and those pulleys will only be mispositioned if the assembly was just replaced and was mounted incorrectly. When the problem occurred after no repairs were recently done, it is almost always due to a pulley riding on a bearing, meaning a spring-loaded tensioner pulley or an idler pulley.
