brake problem

i replaced my front brake pads and rotors about 6 months ago. As i was driving last week i heard a squealing coming from my front left brakes when i apply my brake pedal going slow. i pulled the front wheels and the pads still have more then 1/2 the thickness left and the rotors are not warped. What would cause the front left pads to squeal does anyone know? When i had the wheel off i sprayed brake parts cleaner all over the rotor and pads just incase something was caught up in there. After i put the wheels back on it stopped squealing for a day or two then the squealing came back. I'm stumped, does anyone know what would cause this. if i apply the brake pedal hard it doesn't squeal it only does it when i apply light pressure to the brakes. i hope someone has a simple answer to this. thanks in advance
Tim

Sounds like cheap pads or no anti-squeak goop on the calipers.

The pads were from ford and there's pleanty of anti squeak on the back of the pads. The pads are basically glued to the calipers.
