The observer way:


Then in your module/Model/Observer.php


class Vendor_Module_Model_Observer 
    public function filterGrid(Varien_Event_Observer $observer)
        $collection = $observer->getOrderGridCollection();
        $collection->addFieldToFilter('status',array('neq', 'complete'));

Magento sales order grid collection generate from Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Sales_Order_Grid at class _prepareCollection function.

you need to modify the collection from here.

So you need to override that class

class [ModuleNameSpace_ModuleName]_Block_Adminhtml_Sales_Order_Grid extends Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Sales_Order_Grid
  protected function _prepareCollection()
        $collection = Mage::getResourceModel($this->_getCollectionClass());
            // filter ty status 
        $collection ->addFieldToFilter('status',array('neq', 'complete'));
        return parent::_prepareCollection();
