The OpenSSL options list is ':' or ',' separated. Not spaces.

What you have there is actually just:

 sslproxy_options NO_SSLv2

The problem would seem to be the OpenSSL support at the client end not
overlapping with the support in the Squid library. Which is always a
problem when dealing with very old vs very new library versions.

There are combinations like IE only supporting TLS 1.0 (the default
until last year IIRC) and the latest most modern library behind the
proxy only supporting TLS/1.1 or later.

I assumed that you did already try following IEs error page instruction
("Turn on TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2 in Advanced settings"). Is that
