Change IE9 beta search provider?

Ive read about the bug with ie9 beta search providers, but has anyone been able to set new search provider?

Or is the only option to uninstall the beta, set providers in ie8 then install it again.

Accidentally set wrong google region in ie8, and cant change it in ie9
