How do I convert a string with commas into a double?

I have a number that I am reading from a file.  It is saved with comma formatting, i.e., 2,000,000.00 etc.  When I try to use Double.Parse(valToConvert) it gives me an exception.  Is there a way without writing code to extract out the pure number to convert this?

Thanks

Note to Experts Exchange - the selecting of the time zone feature is aweful!  I can't find eastern standard time.
